Routes in The Gymnasium

Access Issue: Some areas require a guide. Details

Description

A long overhanging wall with many problems, mostly of moreate difficulty, V0-V3 and a harder problem or two. While many of the problems are easy they are also quite tall. The shortest ones are in the middle where there is a black water streak. The problems to the right of this are resonably tall while some of the problems to the left are down right huge.

A very difficult traverse from right to left exists as well with difficult sections at the water stain in the middle and at the very end.

The wall is more or less north facing and almost always in the shade and can be secluded as it is in a hidden slot.

Getting There

This wall is one of the most unique in Hueco and well worth a visit.

To get to the Gym, hike up the chains trail and then go left through the Small Potatoes. Just before the bigger boulders that guard the opening to the North Mountain Meadow, there is a chimney that cuts through the wall to the right. This opening is just opposite the problem See Spot Run and Entrance Crack, an appealing 5.11 crack climbs the wall just left of the chasm. Squirm through this chimney for about 40ft. until it opens to the Gymnasium.

You can also approach the Gym by scrambling over the wall just to the right of the small potato boulders but to the left of the problems on the wall at the Samll Potatos area. Descend at the climbers right end of the wall.
