Pringle on Jumbo Love

 To help work his endurance, Pringle has been climbing at Mount Charleston.  Pringle is close to completing a long standing project at Robbers’ Roost, though he needs to leave for the Teva Games soon. “It's a super fun route though and that keeps me psyched.”

The above footage shows Pringle working Jumbo Love along with Dave Graham prior to Sharma's ascent.

On May 23, Pringle returned to Charleston and fired the Robber's Roost project.  The route climbs a series of pockets in a roof.  Pringle has yet to decide on a name and grade but believes the ascent weighs in around 5.14c/d.  Derek Powell, a San Franciscan who climbed with Ethan at Charleston, said, "Just given the efforts that Ethan put in, there's a distinct possibility that it's 14d."

Pringle will continue to climb in the Nevada area for a few more days before leaving for the Teva games and than returning to San Francisco.
