Hunter Moffitt on False Hueco.


SDS under the largest part of the roof opening. problem moves up into a large hueco and finishes on a good sharp top out.


pad and a spotter. if you fall without a spotter, you may bounce off down the ramp.

Steep moves on mostly big features to a juggy topout. The sloping landing demands a careful spot.

There is a fun v3/4 variation that starts on the same holds, but moves right to a rail before continuing straight up on the right side of the hueco.

Not sure, but I did it differently than the guy in the video. I start matched in the undercling hueco and there used to be a jug out right but it has broken off. I went out left to a crimpy rail than slapped the sloper in the hueco and scored a sweet knee bar in the hueco. I'm about 5'4" so it definitely felt harder than false hueco traverse for me. Had to keep a lot of body tension and the top out was a nice rough mantle since I couldn't score anything for my right foot. It was super fun! I definitely think it is harder than V1 though - especially since holds broke.

Climbed it yesterday and I would say the V1 grade stands. Long moves at the start but the holds are big and the sidepull on the left of the hueco gives easy access to the top.

A little bit harder if you start matching down low like Leen Jamal. For the short people, or for static climbers, a right foot heel hook in the hole down low gets you a great static move to the hueco.
