Yesterday was a good day as I finished Fred Nicole's legendary Monkey Wedding (V15). A boulder that I had tried and got close to doing already many years ago, I'd kept it aside as one of the last remaining climbs for me in Rocklands after an unfortunate series of skin issues. Today, years later, the boulder has seen 7 ascents before me. Feels good to complete a climb I started such a long time ago, but crossing one last climb off my list also marks the end of an era for me in Rocklands. Luckily there are still plenty of great projects in sight to keep busy and new areas to continue developing!
Nalle Hukkataival has also repeated Fred Nicole's Monkey wedding, ~8C, in Rocklands, South Africa. This was the 8th ascent of the problem.
