This is a three bolt extension to the classic Hang 'Em High. It adds some pump and ups the grade from soft 5.12c to very solid 5.12c. This makes Hang 'Em High(er) into one of the best sport routes of its grade anywhere. It makes it a full 30 meter pitch.


13 bolts.

I think that the Hang 'Em High anchors should come out and the route should end with this excellent extension.

"Full 30 meter pitch"? That's funny.

Let the original anchors be. Removing them would set a slippery precedent. What about the original anchors on other routes with popular extensions, such as The Beast and Choss Family? What about less popular extensions, like Bottomfeeder, Crime and Punishment, etc.? If people want to clip the anchors, cool. If they want to go big, cool. With the anchors in place, either option works.

No reason to chop the first anchors, although this is a damn fine line to the second set of chains.
