Two Four Hell

Two Four Hell

24 Hours of Horseshoe Hell is the most infamous climbing competition in the world. 24 hours straight of nonstop climbing at a ranch in Arkansas. Kyle and I won entry into the comp through a Black Diamond contest (thanks BD!!) and headed down south to give it a shot! Neither of us had sport climbed in over 3 years, and had never been on sandstone before, so we set a goal of 50 routes each. A full 24 hours after the shotgun start, we had a combined 129 routes, and earned our horseshoes by getting a climb in every hour of the 24! Here is a highlight reel of 24HHH.
