Brian Kim on the Cybernetic Wall (5.13d)


Scott Franklin, Jerry Moffat, Al Diamond, and now Brian Kim has finally made a repeat of the Shawangunks, New York testpeice — Cybernetic Wall (5.13d) — a techy, bouldery and spicy trad line that has been beating back attempts for over 20 years. Kim reportedly spent a day and a half, attempting the route ground up, pulling the rope and gear with each ascent. He also and did not rehearse the route on toprope prior to his send. Special thanks to belayer Robbie Burnett and video footage by John Young.
