Description Suggest change

The arete between Pillars of Hercules and Cindy's Chimney is a fun toprope problem, or a heady lead.

Climb the arete to a diagonal crack (#0 TCU) and an undercling move to an obvious horizontal ledge. Last pro here is a red camalot size, or maybe very big gear (6" piece) behind the block to the left. Pull crimpy moves on the arete (crux), don't fall, and keep going to a big ledge about 9' below the top. A 1" crack on this ledge provides a final piece of pro before a thin face boulder problem to the topout.

This is the arete between PIllars and Cindy's, or climb #19 in Gary Clarks online Potrillo guide

Protection Suggest change

Cams from very small (#0 TCU) to 1.5" (red Camalot). #5 or #6 Camalot or BigBro optional.

Anchor from a 2-bolt anchor, reachable from the top (please don't sling the tree anymore).
