Weekend Whipper: Loooong Fall on a 5.13a at Arapiles

A whipper this long gives you plenty of time to think about your decisions.

By Rock and Ice | August 30th, 2019

Tim Desmond was in the middle of a redpoint attempt on Final Departure (27/5.13a), Arapiles, Australia, and was feeling good.

“Was gonna send for sure, so I didn’t clip the crux bolt,” he wrote to Rock and Ice. “Then I fell…”

And he fell a looooong way!

Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
