Dieses Video zeigt Jesse Huey bei seinem epischen Kampf mit einer Route, die einem wirklich alles abverlangt. Es handelt sich um "The Shadow" am Stawamus Chief in Squamish, die bereits 1988 von der Kletterlegende Peter Croft erstbegangen wurde - On Sight (!). Seitdem gab es wohl nur eine Handvoll von Wiederholungen. Der erste Versuch von Jesse dauerte satte 40 Minuten - sein erfolgreicher Durchstieg geschlagene 45 Minuten. Wie gesagt - episch!
