Carlo First Ascent of Flux for Life V13 in Endo Valley, RMNP

Carlo at the top out. He fell here at least twice before sending!

We are psyched to report that, despite his destroyed skin and it being at least his fourth day on, our head setter Carlo made the first ascent of a sought after project in Endo Valley, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.  In this picture, Carlo is beginning the finish mantle–a move he fell on at least twice during previous attempts at the boulder when his heel hook picked.  Then yesterday, after a quick stop at the Spot to patch together his worn-out finger skin, he he headed up to Endo with a slightly different heel placement in mind.  The better heel seems to have worked, cause he sent!  He’s calling the problem Flux for Life, and proposing V13.  Nice job Carlo!!!
