Back from a quick weekend trip to Jeff’s World and Secret Lake, with a stop at the future deep water soloing spot, The Swamp wall, in between.
Too many photos and video and thoughts and musings to sort through right now, but these two .gifs say a lot. Click on the picture to watch the .gif in a new window.
Here is Kurt Hager on the upper section of Gargoyle. This is a 5.10+ line to the last bolt. The traverse left to the chains is a delicate 5.11 made harder by the pump you bring with you to the end.
This is Tyler Hoffart on a first attempt at a deep water soloing line on The Swamp wall. There are 8-12 lines here. He had gone around the corner, so I couldn’t see him starting it, but captured the fall spectacularly.
