Recent activity of strong sends has taken place at Southern Utah's Gorilla Cliffs. First and most notable was Paul Robinson's 2nd ascent of Psychadelic 9a. Multiple tries over three days saw him clipping the chains on his 3rd sport route ever.
Isaac Caldiero and Lauren Lee both, back to back sent the short and bouldery Boone Speed route, The Present 8b+. Isaac Caldiero returned a couple of days later to climb it ropeless for the second "boulder ascent". "Its different from most highballs I have done due to its consistencey and crux being 25 feet off the ground. The feeling was full adrenaline.", Isaac states.
