Hypertension is super stiff and super striking, complete with an immaculate backdrop. It is a very overhanging, poddy splitter, tight hands to fingers, capped with a tricky cool pod. After that, the angle backs off substantially and the crack thins down. Rock here is smoother than most of Vedauwoo, there are no real crystals poking out. One of the best lines anywhere, Scarpelli and Suzuki used to run laps on this thing all the time as it was maybe their favorite crack at Vedauwoo. The bottom stays dry in a light rain, and there is a nest of stoppers right after the crux, so you can huck laps on the bottom section. This is a must do for visiting hardpeople. This thing doesn't get nearly the love it deserves, simply immaculate. Do it!
