Thanks to the magic of very hard work, Hyper X is once again open for business as of Sep 20, 2018. Thanks FTA workers Primary Descent from the top of the Hypervent climb.

From the top of Hypervent head behind the bench and it's all yours.

      Beware!!! Super dangerous tree broken over trail at chest level. Difficult to see until you’re on it. Couldn’t move it and didn’t have saw....
