Canadian crack climbing ace Jean-Pierre Ouellet (AKA Pee Wee) wrapped up his US road trip with what is likely the third ascent of the difficult finger crack, No Way Jose 5.13+. “I’m really pleased with this one because I had wanted to get on it for a while.” said Pee Wee. The route No Way Jose was first climbed in 1998 by the late José Pereyra and some believe it is the hardest finger crack of the Utah desert. This climb adds to Pee Wee’s impressive recent road trip tick list where he also bagged ascents of Deadline 5.13+, Master Blaster 5.13+, Concepcion 5.13+ and Pink Flamingo 5.13.
