Nina Williams Highball Bouldering in Bishop, California

For any of you who have had the pleasure of visiting the incredible climbing¬†destination of Bishop, California, you’ve likely¬†made an appearance on Buttermilk Road ‚ÄĒhome to some of the most awe-inspiring highball boulders on the planet.

For this week’s Flick Pick, we’re featuring Nina Williams‘ first trip to Bishop, where she takes on some of the Buttermilks’¬†infamous crimp lines and tall boulder problems. And as¬†an intermission from the sweat-inducing bouldering scenes you’ll experience, you’ll get a brief cuteness explosion from¬†Frankie Von Quillsbury ‚ÄĒNina’s pet hedgehog.

Honestly, on highballs, I don’t want to say that I’m not scared, because I am scared … I cannot allow myself to think about retreat or about falling … ¬†falling is not an option.

– Nina Williams
