with Ben Hanna
Ben Hanna reflects on comps and repeats Lee Majors 5.14c in Arizona.
Balancing time training and sending hard routes on real rock is a tough balance for any climber, but perhaps no one has a harder time justifying large amounts of time projecting outside than World Cup boulderers.
That's why, when American climber Ben Hanna, 23, decided to make a two-week winter trip to the Dry Canyon near Sierra Vista, Arizona it wasn't without some hesitation.
Watch as Ben puts down Nathaniel Coleman's multi-year roof project, "Lee Majors" (5.14+/9a) and manages some other quick ascents including Suzanna Somers: A Love Story (5.14b/8c) and Almost Famous (5.14a/8b+)
With support from:
William Moss (17 years old, New York, USA), 5.14- R / E9/E10 7a / 8b+/8c R Trad send.
William Moss relentlessly pursues the dangerous goal of climbing 5.14 with marginal trad gear at Washington's premiere granite crag Index.
