Jesse Schultz doing the reverse Huck.
Closed to climbing, March 15-June 30 MORE INFO >>>


The start and the finish pack the punch. The middle section has big holds on thin but solid stone.


Orifice Wall on the right side. Single belay bolt about 6 feet right of the first bolt.

None, unless they use horses to make chewing gum and bailing wire.

fun start moves lead to a nice rest before a short but legit V5 crux of pinching and pulling, and the ending is tits too

Wow! At the end of the day and after sending OP and disfigured foreigner I tried this thing. Got my ass handed to me at the crux at the top! It will go next time I am on it. Great route. But man that flake scary shit. But if Mikey B was yanking on it. It should be good.

This thing is enduro, don't think I've ever one-hung a route so many times before eventually sending.

Climbs a LOT better than it looks.
