Chris Lindner on Moist Bass Line 5.14a – f.a. – Area 51, nrg.

On May 14, 2009, Chris Lindner grabbed the first ascent of a project @ Area 51 up at the Meadow River crag. I know the picture is certainly not of the best quality, but it was beginning to drizzle rain as Chris moved into the final 2 crux sequences. Earlier in his visit, Chris added 3 bolts to the existing project to obtain a natural line for the route. A bunch of us headed up to the crag that morning, Buck B., Justin C., and I warmed up on a couple boulder problems and then tried our luck on very aesthetic arete problem that KP told us a little about, while Chris warmed up on a couple routes with the others. Chris pulled the first crux on his first attempt of the day, which gave him the confidence and determination to make this attempt the one. After a good rest, he pulled though the final two sequences to get the send! Very Impressive! It was super inspiring to see Chris get the first ascent of one of the most difficult routes in the area!
