Full Metal Brisket (5.15a/9a+) — First Ascent!

The most legendary project in the New River Gorge region, Full Metal Brisket has resisted the efforts of my elite climbers. In November 2020, however, Jonathan Siegrist invested several days into working this Summersville Lake route…and he came away with the coveted first ascent on November 29th! This is the first 5.15a route in West Virginia.

What’s shown in this video is the crux boulder problem to be sent after climbing a long 5.14b up to this point!
