The Hardest Offwidth Crack in Vedauwoo

They all reported on it when it happened:

Outside Magazine even launched a extensive athlete profile video on her after she did it.

Now, Edelweiss USA and Liberty Mountain are showing you how Pamela "Shanti" Pack made the first ascent of Forever War 5.13c/d R.



Watch it on Vimeo or Youtube.

Pamela called the Forever War "the hardest offwidth crack in Vedauwoo" after nabbing the first ascent in June of 2012. "The Forever War is an 85-foot pitch featuring 20 feet of inverted climbing through a steep roof, followed by overhanging arm-bars capped by 30 feet of 5.12a blue-collar groveling. Despite the two bolts, the route still requires a hefty rack." -Pamela "Shanti" Pack
