Rump Raising? Ass puckering is more like it. Try to envision an alternate dimension where your pro won't blow. We pulled several large "holds" off this thing that were covered in chalk. Can't recommend this in any way with all of the other offerings in the canyon. If you enjoy head games and just have to try it, I'd recommend racking blue and purple Metolius in addition to what's listed above. Jun 24, 2018
