Squamish’s Ben Harnden has made the second ascent of Jeremy Smith’s The Bull 5.14R.
Smith established Murrin Park’s The Bull in 2013, it became one of the area’s boldest leads. Watch a video of Smith nearing the top of the route, while trying to make the first ascent, and taking a big whip here.
Harnden has climbed some of Squamish’s hardest routes including the third ascent of Chris Sharma’s Dreamcatcher 5.14d. He has also added a number of his own hard routes such as The Locknar 5.13dR and the Gunslinger 5.13dR.
In July, Harnden climbed the V12/13 testpiece Black Magic.
