crimpin' on makin' bacon'

Description 

Start on the giant hueco/undercling to make a long, somewhat bouldery move. From here, an enduro-crimp fest awaits. Short, and not all that pumpy unless crimps aren't your thing. One tricky move near the top to (you guessed it) a small crimp. Awesome movement and cool holds. Good technical skills will get you through this one just fine.

Location

Not really technical. Just crimp, step, repeat. Some holds are a bit tweaky if your fingers are larger.
