“I'm climbing really well right now,” says Kutcher. “The day before I warmed up by onsighting Andres's route that's graded M11, but it felt more like M10 to me.”

Located at about 10,000 feet in elevation, the route You’re My Hero M12+ is approximately 35m long and climbs out of an impressive cave-like formation. The route starts on a short easy section and transitions to a steep roof that leads to less steep terrain and finishes on a vertical wall. The crux comes just before the slab at the top. It took Kutcher about 30 minutes to climb the route.
“I climbed it comp style, meaning there was no trickery - tools were for hands only. There was no wrapping of arms or legs around the tools to rest,” says Kutcher.
