All topped out


Start matched in the hueco and climb the face using the intersecting "X" cracks, avoiding the boulder out right, and top out. Fun problem that's a little trickier than it looks.


Approach the lower boulders and go around the left (east) side. Look for the boulder with the big "X"-forming cracks.


Pad, spotter.
