Good morning one and all. James Pearson here, reporting from not so sunny Mallorca. The rain has arrived hard and done its best to dampen our hopes but through a combination of planning, luck and pure pig-headedness we are still managing to climb.
Cedar is "manning up" on both the climbing and video front. He now has the record for the biggest whip on the trip, and is also working really hard on final cut - usually until 5 or 6am every morning! Here is the 4th psicoblog and Im sure you will agree that his hard work is paying off.
Routes in the film include Los-kot and Two Smoking Barrels, and Snatch and are two of the most fun routes I have climbed anywhere. Klem has a real eye for a line and there are a few more of his routes I am psyched on - stay tuned for more...
Hey this is Alex Honnold, writing a little guest intro for Cedar's newest dispatch. Mallorca is pretty much the most fun place I've climbed. We're staying in an awesome house, climbing on perfect rock over the clear ocean. Paradise, I think. In this video Cedar attempts to introduce the rest of the team and show what we've been up to the last few days. It would probably be edited better if there hadn't been an all night rave last night. One of the objective hazards of climbing in paradise. But seriously, we're climbing a lot and we're psyched to get out to some of the newer areas and check out new routes.
If Cedar isn't too lazy, there will be plenty more dispatches of us falling into the ocean. I think Emily has to leave soon, which will cut down on the blood curdling screams, but we'll try to keep it exciting anyway.
So Emily Harrington has arrived on the scene and gotten here first tumble in the rinse cycle! She crushed some routes and whipped off some routes...and generally had a good time yesterday. This blog captures her first moments on Mallorca's wild sandstone, and also features my jump off the top of the 60-foot Diablo wall...with a camera!!! Alex Honnold, and James Pearson just arrived, so stay tuned for more climbs...and whippers with this all-star North Face cast!!!
Wooohooo!! Welome to Mallorca Psicoblogs!!! I've been in Mallorca for over twenty four hours now and had my first taste of Deep Water Soloing. I have to say I LOVE IT!!! I started out my experience with a thirty foot whipper into the ocean!! Stay tuned for more dispatches with North Face rockstars Emily Harrington, Alex Honnold, Matt Segal, James Pearson who arrive soon!!!
