Star Pais – Mandala (V12) – Buttermilks, CA

Check out a quick edit of Star Pais taking down his year long project, Mandala.  First climbed by Chris Sharma in February of 2000, it still reigns as a test piece in bouldering history.  Over the years it’s been solidly rated as V12, but slowly got softer due to holds breaking and beta proliferating.  Recently the Mandala lost a main hold, which may change the climb once again.

Star took it down in November of 2016 after many long sessions.  Although the footage is phone quality, it’s always worth a watch.
