Jeremy fires off the second ascent


Start on Jenga and move into the stand start of Hungry Hippos. It turned out to be a surprisingly natural line with really cool movement.

I'm not clear about exactly where this diverges from Jenga. I understand that they share the first two moves, but does one then do the left hand third move up to the sloper on Jenga and reach super high with the right from there? Clearly the finish jug on Jenga is off for this one, but is anything else eliminated? For the stand start are the start holds for Jenga on for the feet?

I suppose the description wasn't super clear but you end up with your right hand on the arete of Jenga and your left hand on the good crimp just left of the arete. You'd normally hold that one with your right though, before going up to the jug on Jenga. Make sense?

At that point you exit around the corner to the right.

This is one of the best link-up problems in the park. The moves stay consistently hard right up to the finish.
