We’ve never seen a politician stump for themselves while sport climbing before. Watch Katie Hill campaign for congress on the rock in Texas Canyon, located in California’s 25th district. While we don’t know much about Hill’s politics, we’ve gleaned the following from the video:

  • Hill knows how to lead
  • She has the Solutions to get the job done
  • She will take a stance on bird-shit covered slabs
  • She is not opposed to bolts in close proximity to cracks (a controversial position)

Update: A member of Hill’s campaign in the comments has informed us that the route is Cowboy Coffee (5.11+), and that Hill is against bolted cracks, but that the cliff is chossy.
