Above the second hueco and into the steep, big jug...


Anchor your belayer and step out over the void, follow bolts up and right to a huge hueco. Sit down and ponder the meaning of life. Exit the hueco and make difficult moves up and right to a second hueco (Abiyoyo 5.12b heads up and left from the first hueco). Sit down and ponder why we climb. Exit the hueco and follow jugs to the anchor.


Starts at the far right end of the wall as the ledge that all the routes star from peters out to nothing, find an achor bolt to start.


Bolts and a bolted anchor.

For what its worth, i didn't think getting to the second hueco was the crux. Not that it was easy, mind you.

One of the best pitches I've ever done for sure. A super long exposed adventure on killer clean rock. The upper headwall above the second hueco was relaxed 5.10 and very fun. Just try not to get too caught up enjoying the view!

The bouldery moves up an into the 1st hueco felt a little harder than the bit leading into the second. Just my opinion.

Awesome! super awesome!

Fun, exposed, solid 5.11 with good opportunities to rest.

Bring a stick clip - the route begins by traversing off the edge of a small cliff. There are a pair of bolts for the belayer to anchor into, but you'd still want to stick clip the 1st bolt to avoid a factor-2 fall.
