Most Weekend Whipper submissions come with an ample amount of information attached—or we eventually obtain said information by way of multiple email interviews. Why did you fall there? And what made the cam pull? What about you—are you OK?
This whipper, however, dropped into our inbox like a gift from the trad-climbing gods. “Happy whips!” they wrote. “Thanks!” we wrote back, “now a couple questions for you. …” We never heard from them again.
This corner looks steep (and pumpy!), what route is it? And is that a nut and quickdraw dangling from the rope? What gear pulled? And were you just one piece away from a leg-snapping deck?
These questions and more are left unanswered. If they let us know, we’ll do the same, but until then enjoy this excellent mystery whip.
Happy Friday, and be safe out there this weekend.
