Access Issue: New Access Difficulties Details
A new fence laced in razor wire has been erected on the far end of the dam where you used to hop over. Skirting around is a trivial matter, but I'm unsure how the message should be interpreted. There are no new signs indicating closures, and you can still hike over from Stumbling Blocks/Ghetto Wall. If anything the fence is going to have more of an effect on the hikers trying to do the loop than the climbers. On the plus side, I've never seen it so empty at this area.
The most obvious line on the wall. Start up the hueco slab start to the overhang. Work around this to get to the extremely sharp edges on the lower half of the crack. A few more moves and you can get a couple jams in the feces incrusted, jagged crack above. This leads to the final headwall, which involves face climbing around various heucos that serve as homes to the birds that you have to thank for the glorious crack climbing below. Good times!
Can't miss it, look for the crack. The climb technically starts on the hueco slabbish section. The bolted overhanging section to the right is another climb (Water world), or the direct start to this climb (Waterboy)
