    Pulling the first hard move down low

    Star Power V5 6C  TX : Hueco Tanks : ... : Star Power
    One of the best V5s at Hueco. Don't be deceived by starting at the constriction between the floor and roof - look down into the dark depths for the real start. This climbs over 30 ft and you can step off at almost any point!Start all the way at the back moving a bit left then back right into the ass-dragger constriction and a rest. Continue up the face with a heart-breaker pinch near the end....[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
