Description

Start in large Hueco on the upfill side of the boulder. Traverse the rail left and up. The first few moves are v-easy and a really fun. Rating comes from top out!

Location

This is the boulder on the left side of the trail after scrambling up from the entrance boulders. I call this area upper entrance boulders. The boulder also contains the problems 'fisticuffs' and 'stairway to heaven'.

Can we discuss which line is the true "Double Fisted"?
Is it the line that is drawn in green on Eddie Brown's beta photo or is it the line that Rico climbs in the video below?
There seems to be little consensus but asking the FAist would clear it up quick (anyone, anyone?). The Marty guide description leads me to believe it's the line Rico climbs, which in my opinion is the better line anyway.

ANYWAYS... It was brought to my attention about a month or so ago that the big horn that you do that gnarly cross to broke off. I went out yesterday and you can rest easy, it still goes albeit a bit harder (but closer to the given grade ;) V-fun right?)

Either way, both lines are worthy of being climbed and you all should be getting out there and pulling down!

Cheers,
TK
