Amy on Shoot From the Hip. Hard Body is the bolt-...

Description 

With a technical start and a powerful middle, Shoot From the Hip offers a little bit of everything. The crux comes roughly half way up the climb, just past the first clip--which is a home made hanger--and requires a strenuous lockoff and dynamic move. However, the delicate start or the tricky top section could cause you to fall too.


Location 

On the right side of Red Wall, just right of Hard Body.


Protection 

Bolts and small cams or nuts for the start.

Wow, hardest .10c ever! Although, i guess it helps if you don't do it in 90 degree heat....

The first bolt needs to be replaced or tightened. Gear beta is pretty easy, yellow TCU, blue TCU, blue alien. I took nuts up but didn't place any, the crack is a little weird.
