Apollo Reed - First Crux

Apollo Reed - First Crux

Adam Whisthoff engages the first crux of Apollo Reed (5.12), Summersville Lake, West Virgnia. It was a piddly, rainy day and everything was wet, including the "Always Dry" DC memorial so we headed over the Coliseum to take burns on the the grossly overhaning (and dripping) Apollo Reed. Thankfully the holds are big enough that this route can be done bolt to bolt even when it is wet. The setup for this problem was a super-scareball. Hanging off one single bolt (and quite rusty I might add), but I think the photoset was worth the risk. Nikon D70 35mm F2.0 (White Balance - Cloudy)
