FIRST ASCENT: The Godzilla Indirect Sit Start, V12 _ Blake Rutherford

NEWS FLASH!  Mega FoCo Local, Blake Rutherford, has established what is arguably the hardest line in the Fort Collins area with his first ascent of "The Godzilla Indirect Sit Start" @ Arthur's Rock.  Blake spent approximately 20 days on the line that starts between the classics 4 Dollar Arete, V10 and Godzilla, V8 traversing up and right eventually finishing on the top jugs of Godzilla.  With crimps, pinches, non-existent looking holds, and one massive shoulder move this RIG is stacked from beginning to end.  In my opinion Godzilla Indirect features some of the best pure power movement at Arthur's... Thanks for the new line Blake!
