Handle Pull Up

Handle Pull Up

This is my attempt at doing a pullup in the handle of Teakettle, unfortunately the one hold broke off! Skasgaard's timing on the photo was perfect though and caught me in mid air! Luckily I was able to collect myself and have a nice safe landing. Photo by Kiefer Thomas

Now that the secret hold has blown the route is 5.12? :-) Nice pic!

Re: HA!

Thanks! Darn that lousy San Juan rock!

I didn't realize the WHOLE handle broke off! You've got this weird standing in mid-air jump look. :o)
It was awesome getting out with you again. We definately need to do this on a more consistent basis.

Re: Sweet!

Thanks for catching the mid-air moment so perfectly, great timing! Yes, we absolutely have to get out on more peaks, and of course hit those back bowls at Vail again this year!
