Jimmy Webb Climbs Echale (V14)


Echale V14 from Jimmy Webb on Vimeo.

After competing in the ABS National Championships in Colorado Springs, Jimmy Webb headed north to Golden, Colorado, to work on Echale in Clear Creek Canyon. After giving it some serious attempts, and almost splitting a finger open, Webb gave it one last all-out go: "Before I knew it I was climbing into the last hard moves of the boulder with that voice in the back of my mind saying 'don't fuck it up here, you won't make it back.' I stuck the last hard campus move and took a deep breathe and climbed to the top! The feeling I felt once i topped out was like no other. It's just crazy to me that no matter how tired you are you can always muster that reserve energy and kill it. It is rare I know, and that's what makes it so satisfying."
