Description

Just right of a big cave with a cool looking steep wall... Look for the line of bolts up a blank wall with pockets above and more moderate climbing to the top of the cliff....

Climb up on to the seemingly blank wall and start the search for micro crimps... They are there but they are a little tough to find... Wander your way up the micros till the wall steepens and you hit a crux that will gain you a nice Hueco pocket... Once you hit the big pocket its over... Next you hit some cool chicken features then a few moderate bulges to the chains...

A great route if you like insecure low angle face climbing... Route finding and good footwork are a must... Might be stiff in the grade, its harder than the other 5.10ds in the area anyway...

Highly recommended...

Location

look for a blank bolted face just right of a big cave with a pretty 45 degree wall maybe 150 feet along the wall...

Protection

6 bolts to bolted anchor...
