Tom Helvie on Tension Tamer.


This is one of the steeper outings in the Eastern Sierra's, and is an area classic. No move is harder than ~V2, but how many V2's can you do in a row?

The best pure endurance testpiece in Mammoth.


Next to "I Fly."


10 bolts + anchors; equipped with fixed cable draws.
