Taylor Hagel takes down Pinch Hitter!

Description 

This one will make you step up to the plate and go down swinging!

The beginning of this fine route is the ultimate jug-haul that will get you horizontal and off your feet!

The big buckets come to an abrupt end when you move up to a headwall with some technically weird holds that include sick fingerlocks and cool crimps. Be prepared to drop the ball and take the ride. A great introduction to the thrills, spills and chills found on its much bigger teammates to its left.

Location 

Pinch Hitter is the left-most route in The Dugout.

Protection 

Fixed draws at the beginning. Bring a few of your own draws for the top section.
