|Javelina Cave and the A Frame
A marathon boulder problem by Tucson standards (10+ moves), Javelina Left starts on a right facing block at the base of the seam just as the cave itself becomes accessible. Prepare for a good hamstring burn as you utilize multiple heel hooks to move left and up through pinches, edges, crimps, and slopers. Finishes a little off the deck with a terrible landing. Try to stay right on the positive edge on the face as it is hollow and certain to pop someday. Don't be the 'popper'.

aside from being a bit sharp (thus limiting the number of burns per day), this thing is a must do if you're living in or passing through Tucson.
