Description

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

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

Protection

A few pads are very helpful for the topout.
