This thing isn't even in highball range. Just go for it with a spotter and use it as low risk down climb practice. Also, I don't think it's 20ft. Probably closer to 12ft-15ft. Nov 22, 2016

No bolts on top. (except 2 on the face for middle finger 5.10, but these are on another plane) Apr 14, 2013

Use this to set a TR on the Middle Finger (5.10). That will up the stars on your experience. Sep 17, 2010
