Description

This is the easiest problem in the Black Hole. Start in the center of the Hole on some huge jugs a few feet off the ground. Traverse right in huge pockets until you reach the obvious jug line going up and slightly to the right. Make a few moves to gain hand holds on a ledge. The final hold is a few feet higher and to the left. Down climb the acsent route. This is a popular warm up for any other climb in the area.

Protection

If you don't have this problem wired, definitely use a pad. A fall from the top can be very dangerous.
Mike and I used to do this route all the time down in morrison. Its a good inverted problem and its not too intimidating. Always a favorite when climbing at morrison. Lots of good memories, but bring your crash pad. Im sure youll see Mikey there staring at the rock and giggling like a little girl.

In John Sherman's Hueco Guide, he lists the standards for his V-system of grading boulder problems. He lists Breashear's Crack (this problem) as standard for V2. Feb 11, 2009

Try to avoid using the big slot out right to heel hook/rock onto. That move took my knee out for 2 months. (Other than that, loved it). Mar 30, 2010
