Weekend Whipper: Hellion (5.13c), Ten Sleep, Wyoming
Andrew Duncan pops off the finger-tweaking Hellion (5.13c) in Ten Sleep, Wyoming.
"This was about my 5th attempt on the route and I couldn't figure out a good stance to clip the 4th bolt from,” he says, so this time around he decided
to gun for a good three-finger pocket higher up and clip from there. But before he could make the clip, his foot popped.
”On the way down the rope gets caught behind my leg and I almost flip upside down,” Duncan says. "Fortunately I did not get any rope burn, and my neck
and back were not sore at all the next day (hopefully I didn't cash in all of my karma points for that…).”
Duncan hiked back up the rope to his high point and finished the route from there.
