09th May 2018
09th May 2018

3 weeks in Leavenworth, 12 days of rain, 17 double-digit boulder problems, despite 6 days dedicated to The Penrose Step. Keenan Takahashi went on a tear in Leavenworth in April 2018, climbing (almost) every hard boulder problem in the area. This video is mostly a sending spree, with the last six minutes dedicated to an effort to display just how much effort goes in to sending a hard boulder problem.
