Ben Hanna, 21, from Santa Fe, New Mexico, currently lives in Salt Lake City, Utah to train at the U.S. climbing center. While he’s dabbled in hard outdoor climbing, with ticks like Helsinki (5.14c/d) and Everything is Karate (5.14c), Hanna’s primary focus is comp climbing. Last year he dominated at several of the National Cup competitions, including the Battle of the Bay, where he took first place.
On doing this 90 degree pogo, Hanna wrote on Instagram: “Like 40 tries and multiple tantrums later, top was acquired.”
