It’s Friday, so strap on your dancing shoes and have a go at your project.

Danilo Infanti exhibits a bold Twist on Dark Néctar (7b/5.12b) at Falésia dos olhos in Brazil; a technical granite crag that rewards precision and commitment.

“The climb imitates life, one false step and I’m going to fall badly,” Infanti wrote to Climbing in an email.

When Infanti pulls his left leg up, willing it to stick on a slick foothold, the friction is not in his favor and he’s in for a rather acrobatic fall.

Happy Friday, and be safe out there this weekend.
