This climb follows the middle of the left buldging wall.

Start out on some slopey and insecure deadpoints, then work up pumpy moves with a couple of hard clips to a horn 1/2 way up that allows a good rest. Rest, then punch out the final moves past 3+ bolts to gain the anchors.

This route hands out a huge pump!!

There is currently a rat living in the bottom heuco, be kind and try not to us the heuco.


center route on the buldging wall, left of Boing/Springer slab routes.


7 bolts to anchors.

This route desperately needs to be cleaned! the huge flake in the middle moves when you weight it and could do some serious damage. it really shouldnt be climbed until that flake is removed.

Really cool movement with several tough deadpoints and lots of variety. I got very pumped and the route felt stout at the grade to me, but there aren't any stopper moves, just lots of solid 5.11 moves on a rapid pump clock. Those with strong endurance will probably not find it as hard.

Hardest 5.11 I've done. Probably harder than the 5.12a at the same crag. Multiple cruxes, sustained sections, technical rests. Every part of it is fun though.

Don't be ashamed to stick clip the 1st bolt. Its 15' off the ground, and the hardest moves on the route are either right before or after it, I forget.
