It consists of about ten, V11 to V12 MOVES in a row, talk about power endurance. Topping out at around 20 feet or so, makes for an intense highball, I hate to say it bub, but it's not for the faint at heart.
With this beautimus piece of stone being so high and overhanging, it is extremely difficult to work out the moves, everything must be done ground up, that is unless you have a plethora of pads, any takers!!
Just after the trade show in January, a couple good fellows from out of town lingered around for a bit, Jon Cardwell and Andre Defelice. We could only handle battling in the snowy boulders of Little Cottonwood for so long till it was time to head down to dry ground, Joe's Valley! The lads were extremely psyched to toss there carcasses towards an old time classic Black Lung V13. Having perfect temps, streamline beta and high motivation, I thought for sure the lung would indeed get another slap down from the young energetic crew, after all was said in done, the Lung won. Jon and Andre decided to save it for another day. Props to the legend Ben Moon, for having such an outstanding vision and unparalleled amounts of motivation to ascend this wee little piece of magic stone. It has and will, entertain the lights of many generations to come. Cheers Mate!Jon making a very strong go on the Black Lung
