Good Friday was really good for Jason Piper, who managed to put together all the moves on his first ascent at Bulahdelah. He called it “The Beast Factor” and gave the grade of 28. This line climbs a seemingly featureless white wall and took him over 6 months of work to snag the clean ascent. It’s a great addition to hard local climbing in the area.
Easter Saturday brightened up Pete Tosen’s day, with ascending a long term project at South Central in Nowra. A climb called Crenshaw Boulevarde weighing in at a grade of 31. Complete with the smallest of positive holds and a 1 finger mono at the start of the crux. Pete’s systematic approach to training plus years of climbing finally paid their dues.
Easter Sunday brought Pete more than just sweet Easter Eggs. He climbed a strenuous linkup of Ain’t no Sunshine (28) into 95% of Physical Graffiti (31) then back into the last dynamic move of Ain’t No Sunshine 28. Putting his shoulder on the line for another grade 31 called Ain’t No Physical Sunshine When his Gone Graffiti.
With these hard sends going down at the start of the season, it looks like a promising year ahead for the strong lads from Pulse.
