“Ben Rueck makes the second ascent of the Escalante Canyon test-piece Frank Zappa Appreciation Society (5.13+), Colorado.
With miles of untouched sandstone, splitter cracks and no crowds, Escalante Canyon is “like the Forgotten Indian Creek,” says Mayan Smith-Gobat.”
About Osprey Athlete Ben Rueck:
I am a professional rock climber focused on reaching my greatest potential in the discipline that I have chosen. Why do I climb? To put it simply, there is nothing else that inspires me to better myself quite like climbing does. It has this incredible ability to bolster and humble me as I push harder toward my goals. Climbing makes me earn every inch– and what one can achieve is simply amazing. In my pursuit to better myself I travel the world in search of inspiration from people, cultures, and rock.
