Travis Melin on "Event Horizon"

Description 

It does not get much prouder than this boulder. This is the stand start to the toughest line on the block.

This is on the left side of the main face of Horizon, to the left of "Horizon Line " (V6).

At the base of the boulder there is a large in-cut gap. To the left of this, look up and find the small quartzite crimps and crystals. Near these look for the best diagonal in-cut crimp rail, and this is the right hand for the stand start to "Event Horizon". I had to stand on two pads to reach the right hand which is at a full arm span to the left and is a bad slopey pinch.


Move up and left to a tough overhead crimp rail, and then find your way to the flat ledge with juggy portions past that. Make another fun, big move to the juggy top. Enjoy the view when youÂ’re done!
