Josh Fuller on Long Shot


This problem tests your core strength. You're never more than four feet off the ground. Traverse right to left. Start off with a heel-hook with your right foot. Start matched on a good jug, move left for a crossover with your right hand.

V1 moves- but don't let this rating fool you. Pumpy, endurance, technique- all around spectacular problem.


Keep walking past Ozzy Boulder, on your left. Looks like a tiny cave.


Pad and your spotter to move it over the rocks below.

Does this problem include a top-out? If so...felt like V3.

Yep- go straight up at the left end of the lip. Lots of footwork.

Sandbagged- but not a V3....not by a long shot. Haha, I crack myself up sometimes.
