Taylor Hagel takes down Pinch Hitter!


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.


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


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