Photos from the send day
DG booted up a few times, expectations didn't get too high, but then all of a sudden he was on top of that damn boulder screaming his lungs out in joy of his earned victory.

Background on Bridge Of Ashes
I feel pretty fit on the problem now, and feel confident I could put it together solidly now, except for my ravaged skin, seemingly healing at a brutally slow pace. The problem is made of brutal Elk Stone Granite; a very grainy sharp type of rock, albeit bomber, colored orange, with a big grain. The crystals in the rock are all you stick to, and destroy the skin. The terrible left hand crux hold, a heinous less-than-quarter-pad mini-edge, is a tip splitter and session ender, adding terror to the equation ever attempt.
