Weekend Whipper: Squamish Cheese GraterBy Rock and Ice | September 9th, 2016
“The day has finally come that I have a fall that may just be worthy of Weekend Whipper status,” Nikolai Paterak says.
He was climbing Apron Strings (5.10b) on The Chief, Squamish, B.C. After pump-inducing layback moves and delicate smearing, he entered the thin crux, protected by small nuts, and “blew it so hard.”
“I’m fine, outside of a lot of missing skin of course,” he says. “Unfortunately the video cuts out because my friend selfishly thought I was real hurt.”
Happy Friday and stay safe out there this weekend!
