Follow the huecos up the black streak right of Pumping Huecos. Interesting moves with big pockets lead through a fun steep section; this part is reminiscent of similar parts of Pumping Huecos and Hollywood Tim. A well-protected thin move follows the steep part. (The anchor was recently moved to a better location, I'm not sure on specifics, but it will make sense.)


This climb begins 10' right of Pumping Huecos, following bolts up a black streak.


4-6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor

when I set up this route the idea was always to go to the achors of maddogs and englishmen. I just ran out of regular hangers, if anyone wants to change out the hanger be my guest.

It is not fun to finish the route and realize there's no anchors...

This route now has anchors courtesy of Luke Laeser. I also added some aluminum leaver biners - if you want to swap these out for stainless, please do.

It's also a very worthy climb! Do it!
