This route along with Chainsaw Massacre are somewhat of a right of passage into the harder offerings at the Motherlode. Though the grades are the same, locals never cease to argue over which is harder. Both routes along with just about everything else at the Undertow stays dry when its dumping.
Start on a small boulder reaching up and gaining a large shelf to make the first clip. The prudent step back down to rest for a minute and make the first couple moves with stick clip protection, whilst the intrepid continue to venture on. From here you are met with a crimpy boulder problem involving a lockoff to a left hand sidepull. The difficult moves continue for a couple more bolts, tying on a preliminary pump before the chain run begins. The remainder of the route consists of steep climbing in decent holds with the occasional difficult pull. There are many places to rest if slopey jugs suit you well. Crank up to the anchors where a bomber clipping jug will be waiting for your arrival.
Right side of undertow, a bit to the left of the massive Hueco.
