Matt Cox completes Adrenochrome 8a (Deep water solo “Ground up”)

Home/Climbing, Climbing Videos, Deep Water Soloing/Matt Cox completes Adrenochrome 8a (Deep water solo “Ground up”)

Matt Cox (Sponsored by RedChili) has done it again, in between working hard, creating babies and not much climbing, has, after a few visits completed the Deepwater solo climb Adrenochrome which goes at the solid grade of 8a.

Not only did Matt complete Adrenochrome, a must do project of his, he did it “ground up” or I suppose sea up. Climbing a route “ground up” means to climb the route with out looking at the top out holds, abseiling to look at the route or top roping the line, the only way you know where and what the holds are like is from what you can see from the ground or as you climb the route, that means that as you hopefully reach a high point on each attempt you still have no idea what is coming up and on a 8a thats is a big task.

No matter how it did it, it is was ace to be there to watch him and put together a little video of the route in between my falls of a lot of other routes.
