All paths lead nowhere, choose with heart

Went to Gus Fruh with Coco the other day. Trying to make the most of this glorious cloudy-cool snap we’ve been having, although it promises to warm up over the weekend. I don’t like the Fruh generally, because I feel like I’ve done what all I can do there, which is like 4 easy things, and everything else is a shut out. I only think that because I’ve never done the last loooong move on this otherwise very basic roof problem in the cave, hence I’m discouraged. But the other day I got on this random problem on the Whipping Post boulder for the first time. I have no idea if it has a name or anything, but this toothy crimp caught my eye and I was able to do it easily after Coco demonstrated. Here’s Merrick on the Whipping Post a few years ago. The new one I did is the second one he does, where he breaks a chossy foot (still fully functional).
