Deep within the vastness of Hueco Tanks, Texas, Jason Kehl sifts through the syenite-porphyry to find some of the most beautiful and exhilarating first ascents. Finishing up an old project, the lower start to Nymphomaniac, a.k.a. ye old Sacred Sex Arch Project. The giant arch boulder that sits high a top the rugged West Mountain, perched dangerously close to a precipice. Do or die, the choice is yours.
