Description

A nice long route on mostly huge holds. Unadulterated fun. This climb starts up the second big cave/roof at the Stratocaster area and goes up and left to bypass the roof on good holds, then up a hugely huecoed face on huge holds (with a few huge moves) to reach a fixed anchor. Swain's book suggests rapping with 2 ropes, but I recall lowering off and TRing my partner with a single 70M rope.

Location

This climb is the OBVIOUS hueco and jug system starting up the left side of the main stratocaster cave, perhaps 50M past Cut Loose and 30M past Foot Loose. a few minutes South of Running man wall. This is a bit to the left a short bit of the area's namesake climb 'Stratocaster'
