Weekend Whipper: Missing the Pads at Devil’s Lake, Wisconsin

The devil is in the details… like proper pad placement…

By Rock and Ice | November 16th, 2018

Bouldering pads have to be placed just so, ya know? If those pads aren’t placed perfectly they aren’t gonna do you much good… as Kevin deftly demonstrates in this week’s Whipper.

He nears the top of Keymaker, a V10 at Devil’s Lake, Wisconsin, when he slips and hits the ground with a resounding thud and a puff of chalk. Spotter might’ve been more helpful than a videographer in this situation… Just sayin’. Either way, we’re glad you walked away in one piece Kevin!

Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
