5.8 | Outside the Cones (evo Portland)

Okay, so I have to be honest, I may have cheated a bit here. You might not see it but let me explain.

I’ve totally climbed this route clean before. I actually climbed it clean the first attempt. This time around was a different story. Some days I feel like a boss at the gym, others not so much. This was a not so much day. I attempted two routes before theĀ half so by the time I was on this route, wasn’t feeling too strong. About half way up, I fell off the route. After about a minute of hanging, I finished it. Rather than bore you with the hang time, I edited it out. See if you can spot the splice. This is a pretty fun 5.8 otherwise and it just went up about a week ago so it should stick around for a while.
