Description

Right of Devotion, right of the new climb "Just Sack Up and Send it" and left of OCS (Old Cold Shuts). 1st pitch is 5.9. Continuing right leads to the anchors of "Slam Hound" at the hueco/cave. Hidalgo Strangler continues straight up with diverse, fun climbing with a rest after the crux. The semi-detached large flake is solid but I wouldn't crank on it.
This climb gets shade until about 11:00 or 11:30 in the winter.

Bolted by Wes Green, Rick Ross, Simeon Heimowitz and Jake Shannon.
I gave this three stars because I don't want to over-rate my own climb but I really feel this is one of the better climbs on the wall, which is saying a lot for the series of great climbs next door at Mileski.

Location

70m required to get off. It's overhung so tram in when lowering.

Protection

about 16 bolts plus anchors.
