Russ at the little roof, most likely the crux.

Some areas require a guide.


The line follows clean and well featured rock with the bolt line easily seen from the ground.

3 or 4 bolts and 35' up you will encounter a roof where there is a bolt hidden above. Continue on steep rock up and right to 2 bolt anchor & rappel.

More tightly bolted than neighboring routes it provides some welcomed comfort as the rock is steep and sustained.

Excellent climbing and a must do for any Hueco Tanks visit.


Located right 15' of the large juniper tree and just left of Lunacy the obvious wide left facing dihedral.


11 bolts to 2 bolt off-set anchor

This is a nice rig! Plenty of bolts, a few thinking moves, and mild pump will follow you to the anchors. This route starts about 15ft to the right of Final Stone, the shallow right facing dihedral just to the left. The guide describes Window Pain as starting on the ramp to the left of Lunacy, but in reality, it does not start on the ramp at all. It follows the obvious line of bolts starting in the vertical brown rock with the nice huecos that leads to a small roof about 30ft up.
