Description

Cool movement on mostly good holds with a high intimidation factor.

Stand tall off the slab and stretch up to a juggy hueco. Match and work up on underclings and right facing holds that leave you feeling out of balance eventually gaining the right starting hold of the high problem with your left hand. Match then move left to a cool pinch and a big move up to a jug at the lip. The top out is pretty easy.

The first few moves are over a small flat landing zone in the lower area up until you make the first move out left to the good gaston. Then going into the undercling and moving up to the starting olds of the high start you are over the square edge of the platform that the high start begins on and a fall could be bad. Going to the undercling and getting your feet up is probably the most dangerous bit. Falling off the move to the start of the higher problem is relatively safe but intimidating.

Location

Right side of the wall that Asylum Crack is on. Start low near the arete off of the slab.

Protection

A pad down low, one up high and one draped over the lip. Two spotters.

Guns of Navarrone is a project in the Wilder guide and it's only a 6. As far as I can tell you got the first ascent, good job! Jan 25, 2016

This is listed as a project in the Wilder Hueco guide, problem #19 on pg 67. There was no chalk on it when I first tried it a few years ago and no chalk on it this time either. I would however guess that at the difficulty it seems as though it probably has be climbed previously though I could be wrong. It seems unlikely that a problem is listed as a project and is only V9 on North and has not been climbed. Apr 12, 2009
