Vietnam 2009: My Way or the Railway 8a

This is a short clip of the hardest route I did in Vietnam. Happily, it was a first ascent. About three days of work went into the prepping, cleaning, bolting, working and sending.

The route is currently the second hardest sport route in Vietnam. It's about 30m long and is absolute primo quality. Grade 8a (29) but it might actually be harder as I relied heavily on locking down right gastons, which is one of my freak strengths at the moment due to the use of this grip on hard projects this year. I was super duper psyched about it!
