I injured my forearm on day 1 of our attempt on South Seas into the PO wall. Not the best timing. We tried to continue to see if it would improve, but it did not, and without me at full strength it wasn’t realistic to continue. One of the best things about getting on El Cap is that as long as you don’t need to call YOSAR, then you either get to send the route, or you get to send the bail. We elected to send the bail. And send hard! Rob (@humanboltgun) was attempting to swing into the wall to clip the next anchor on a severely overhanging rappel, but he missed and ended up dangling there in space, unable to get back to the wall. He had to jug back up and try to send this rap again. Took him 3 tries to work out the beta and get the moves dialed, but he got the redpoint on the rap eventually! Sick send! *Note: we are professional sponsored rapplers. Do not try this at home without an experienced rappler to make sure you’re safe…
