Heart Cave Direct


The direct line up the Heart Cave, avoiding the broken jugs of the standard start, is stellar. Begin on low sloping sidepulls, bump left to a positive slot and make some big slaps and powerful cranks straight up to the jug horn, then continue through the committing, scary topout of the standard Heart Cave problem. Great moves on uncharacteristically friendly rock.


On the column in the Heart Cave, climb direct to the horn.


A few pads are very helpful for the topout.
