Pamela Shanti Pack is one of the best off-width climbers in the world. This video chronicles her battle with the "Mental Block," an off-width detached block on the second pitch of Kill Artist (5.13) in Long Canyon, Utah. The off-width section on the Mental Block is incredibly dangerous because the block could come off during an ascent. Additionally, climbing the Mental Block requires inverted off-width movement.
This film does feature a cameo by Scott Massey. Scott was an AAI Instructor and Guide for several years.
Please note that there is profanity in this film.
