Cory French, Spectre v13

Quick note to say congrats to Cory French for his ascent of Spectre (v13) on Monday 13th.

Nice work Cory. I believe Cory figured out the problem over three or four days and used a roll-through move at the start allowing easier placement of the key right toe, before matching the small crimps just before the crux. He moved right above the lip before topping out up the high slab.

... Caught the tail end of this ascent from a vantage point down below at the lydia boulder, was bummed i missed the intro! So sick! Have heard some say this is The East sides most physically demanding line, a tick of the highest degree... great work! //SeanS
