We reported a few weeks back that Mike Foley was close to sending The Fly, 5.14d or V14, at Rumney.  Well, on Friday, Mike sealed the deal by sending the extreme crimpfest.  Mike commented on Facebook: "Finally put The Fly (14d/V14) to rest! Lots of days and lots of tries. Even linked it into Côte D'Azure (13b) for good measure."  The Fly is Mike's 3rd 5.14d.  Check out the video below of Kevin Jorgeson's ropeless ascent of The Fly.
