Description

"The Hueco Problem" is a sit-start problem really low on the Hueco Wall in front of several smaller, boulders which make for a dangerous landing.

Work up into the hueco, and up to a really solid jug.

The top-out isn't bad, but a fall here could be pretty ugly. A couple of pads and at least one spotter is recommended.

Protection

Pad and a spotter and maybe some more pads and spotters.

I think this is a little harder than V2. I always thought it was V4, especially if you start with the low sit-down. Jun 20, 2003
dear greg, I concur with the v4 rating. Upon further speculation I also agree with the probability of the afformentioned "transfer". Jun 21, 2003

The topout has really good holds. The V0 downclimb off this boulder is almost worse. Jun 20, 2007
