Tristan Catches a Trout – Highballing in Gold Bar, WA

Tristan Chen puts in work on the V13 highball "Takes A Village"—for some reason also known as "Trout of This World"—in the Gold Bar Boulders, Washington

The back side of the 5-star boulder in Gold Bar, Washington hosts a beautiful 20+ foot face of thin seams and edges. First climbed by Brian Nugent in 2017, Takes a Village (known colloquially as Trout of This World) is a physical and mental test piece of bouldering. Watch Tristan Chen clean moss with a grill brush, dry holds with a leaf blower, and battle generally poor conditions to take down one of the most striking highballs in the country!
