The Huck

Description

Start as for the Angel Dyno but move more or less straight up to a small but positive right hand crimper. Find the foot beta and make a long reach to the lip. Mantle it out and move along. A great sequence.

If anyone knows the name and grade post it up.

Protection

Crashpad and a spotter feels good.

[Hide Comment] You're right. The V5 variation is something silly like "use the hold as a left hand gaston..." and then make the same move to the lip. Sort of a contrived variation. I suppose a soft V5 is appropriate for the grade. Dec 24, 2011

I have no idea if this is The Huck or Left Exit. I did end up doing a left gaston... Jan 2, 2013
