The 14 years old climber Alex (Zander) Waller sends with „Lucifer“ and „Southern Smoke“ two 8c+’s and he flashed also „Omaha Beach“ (8b+)  in Red River Gorge. His next topic is „Golden River“ (9a). We will see :-).

Alex writes by Instagram: „Connor and I woke up today extremely psyched, with the focus on sending one of the best climbs in the Red, Lucifer. After a long warm up, I managed to make it to the chains, and soon after, Connor followed with a seemingly flawless send (this was after we both punted a hold away from the break). This was probably the hardest I have tried for a route, and I am excited to see what the next three days hold.

I managed to round off my Red River Gorge trip with a rather unexpected send of Southern Smoke 5.14c/8c+, a flash of Omaha Beach, and a send of God’s Own Stone, one of the most fun climbs at the Red. Can’t wait to get back! Golden Ticket next!“
