Dragons of Eden: Second Free Ascent
Just wanted to congratulate Max Hasson with not only completing the second free ascent of DOE, but nearly flashing the rig! His one fall was quickly corrected and the pitch climbed clean. Belaying Max on this journey was especially fun for me. DOE is one of my favorite routes anywhere and to watch Max experience its goodness had me giddy.
I really hope people keep climbing and cleaning this line. Buff it up and watch it shine. DOE is one of the best routes of its nature on the West Coast (biased opinion of course). Nice work again Max!
