The sucktastic climb that is Locksmith is completely redeemed with the low start in the big hueco. Undercling to the crimp and toe-hook to acquire a right hand. Here's where it gets tricky as the toe release can send you off. Figure out the balance then throw to the start hold of Locksmith while keeping your feet off the pads. Finish out on Locksmith.

This appears to be a newer route but has excellent movement rivaling the classic of the area.


Under the roof at The Locksmith


Several pads with spotters to move them around as you progress


Hello. I put that problem up a few years ago. I called it "Unlock This", however, my friends with me that day decided it should be called "The Cocksmith" either one of those is fine :) I thought V6 was appropriate. Glad you liked it.
