Tavis cranking the crux of the second pitch. Octob...


Starts on the north side of the tower which leans against the western toe of the Lost Huecos wall. The first pitch climbs bolted slab past several bolts to a 5.9 roof crossing the limestone band. Bolted belay on top of the limestone. The second pitch climbs an awesome hand crack which pinches to tips before opening up again in the obtuse corner formed by the edge of the tower (10c). Belay on top of the tower at another comfy belay. The third pitch steps down and right to access a handcrack out on the face. Cruise up the handcrack (5.8) to the top. There is a bit of looseness on the third pitch. Once on top head east before descending slopes to the north then down a west facing gully back to your packs.


Double set from tips to hand sizes.

This climb is not as good as LW. The corner pitch looks inviting, but protects with some pretty small stuff in marginal rock. The moves are committing and feel like maybe 11a tips laybacking. Don't take this one lightly! The bolts on the first pitch are unnecessary. There are good placements next to all of them and the climbing is easy.

I heard this is route was named Winnebago.
The second pitch is pretty exciting but I'd give it 10.c & PG13 at most.
