[Hide Comment] Has anyone tried this from the start of On The Fence? Adds a few more fun moves to the beginning and makes it tricky to get comfortably into the starting position for Tennessee Thong. Mar 22, 2020

[Hide Comment] Haven't heard many people talking about how insanely contrived this line is. You can easily traverse all the way left and climb the footholds, not using any new or "off-limits" holds. Feels about V4 like this. Nov 28, 2022

[Hide Comment] Best climb I’ve ever done if your struggling with the last two moves I found using the far right foot best to get to the bad hold and then bring it up and in nice and high just under the crack helps for the last move here’s a link to my video youtube.com/shorts/18JlqCoP… May 25, 2024
