Watch the first ascent of I’m Your Huckleberry 5.13 by Randy Leavitt at El Cajon Mountain, San Diego, California.
Video camera work by Chris Hubbard. Belay by Zach Gelbart. This beautiful granite rock climb ascents the first half of a crack climb called Crack-A-Mite 5.11a then breaks out right up a steep headwall to an impressive finish 5.13b.
“I’m Your Huckleberry” is 19th century slang which was popularized more recently by the movie Tombstone. Means “I’m who you’re looking for.”

In 1977 we discovered this parking structure in Los Angeles that became our indoor climbing gym. The thought of building our own, with plastic holds, was still at least 10 years away. #buildering #maximropes #stonemasters #climbinghistory #bouldering #gymclimbing #climbing #rockclimbing #tbt – I believe 📷 by @alpinecruzer or Tony Yaniro
