  • Description 

    This is the go to top rope route in the canyon. Though it may not be the best in terms of quality it is certainly a decent climb by the canyon's standards. Crux is the first 20ft after that its relatively easy climbing up the Huecos.


    Located at the base of Hueco Point this route ascends strait up the face with lots of huecos. Start 15ft right of the The Dihedral Crack and climb strait up.


    Top rope, use the tree at the top for the anchor and the tree behind it for backup. I used 90+ ft of webbing (tied in loops) and felt I could have used more. If you don't know how to proporly build and anchor seek professional help.
