Description [Edit]

The direct line up the Heart Cave, avoiding the broken jugs of the standard start, is stellar. Begin on low sloping sidepulls, bump left to a positive slot and make some powerful moves straight up to the jug horn, then continue through the committing topout of the standard Heart Cave problem.

Location [Edit]

On the column in the Heart Cave, climb direct to the horn.

Protection [Edit]

A few pads are very helpful for the topout.
