Writing in chalk MORE INFO >>>


Ruchert Motion is an excellent slabby testpiece that will test both your finger strength and edging ability. Pull and dance your way up a few bolts of reachy 11+ vertical climbing until you reach the sobering crux of Ruchert. Here you will need to engineer a way to move through the thin holds and all but non existent foot holds. Have faith, figure out your sequence, and hang on like a pit bull. Once you've made it through the crux, the climb gets continually eaiser as you head to the anchors. Slow down and enjoy the fun ride to the top. You now can call yourself a slab jedi.


Between Spiderwand/Wham Bam... and Burning Calves.


8 bolts to bolted anchor.
