Sunfish Summer Torture

A long standing project finally fell at Sunfish Pond, Chinese Water Torture. This is a serious line, long power moves on very very  small grips out a nearly flat roof. Definitely the most challenging line at the main set and quite possibly will be the hardest of the region.

The name stems from the crux hold, which is a very small crimp mono that always seems to be drippy wet. I am very against blow torches as it is totally unnecessary and damages rock. I came up with a solution of using the compressed air in the can that is used for electronics to dry the hold every attempt. Time consuming but certainly works. I am super happy to tick this off the super proj list. Thanks to the folks who where there during all those failed attempts keeping my syke high with positive energy.
