[Whip occurs at 5:28]

I don’t always victory whip, but when I do, I victory backflip.

This week’s Weekend Whipper brings us to Rumney, New Hampshire and the iconic prow of Predator (5.13b) at Orange Crush. At 45-degrees overhanging,
the route’s airy upper-half invloves a dyno crux move to a jug. Stick that, and you still have to fight the pump to the lip. Most people like to clip
the chains, some choose to take the victory whip and a rare few top out. Lee Hansche chose the top out and victory whip—with a backflip
thrown in for good measure (not recommended).

Happy Friday and stay safe out there!
