Speaking of Huecos?

...ever seen a transition between bigger ones? I found this boulder hiking around our first day in South Africa next to the road. I called over the hill for the big guns.

Later that evening Andy Raether set up for the second ascent, and made the insecure move to a crimp over the lip of the boulder. He missed it. Here in the lower photo I am spotting him, well I am trying to anyway. Andy flew thirty feet and over my head! He missed the pads completely and narrowly missed an ankle crushing boulder by a mere inch. Andy sat out almost a full week with bruised heels. I'm sorry bro.
