Cruxin'

My Heart Grew Wings Under Desert Skies V4 6B PG13  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Desert Skies/Morning Dove A...
A fine boulder problem with a stiff start, a nice rest and an exciting finish. Start with pockets down low under the giant, obvious hueco. Use pockets and edges to make a couple stout moves to gain the jug in the giant hueco (crux). Move up on edges and jugs to the topout. Don't pull too hard above the big hueco, as the holds may be loose, some are hollow and it's fairly high....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
