Sonnie Trotter had er "4 and a half HOT and sunny weeks, 14 enduring days, 24 fifty foot falls, 47 snickers bars, and 113 emails to Lydia" voor nodig om Rhapsody te beklimmen. Sonnie: Rhapsody is basically a 5.13c/d into a V10/V11 and a cheeky one at that. Not ground breaking terrain, by sport climbing standards. But every time I think I am going to stick it, something goes wrong, a foot slips, a finger slips, a tip bleeds, or I just miss the hold entirely. It is not a matter of if I can climb the route, it is a matter of when. And so I try and so I wait.
Maar lees vooral zijn zeer geestige stukjes over de aanloop naar zijn beklimming.
