The creativity required to climb competition routes always amazes me. Besides the obvious difficulty of just hanging onto this hold, getting into a position to be able to move to the next hold seemed impossible to me.  Here, @rachaelfarmer87 shows how it's done with a very high heel hook that relies her incredible strength and technique. Oh, and did I mention climbers only get about a minute to preview the routes before climbing in front of 100 cheering spectators?
