Description

This line gets credit for being the only 4 star V7 in Hueco according to the Wilder guide. I'm not sure if it's the best, but it is certainly classic and up their with BabyFace and Roughage. Start laying down up on a shelf with a heel / toe cam and hands on a left facing shelf. Climb leftwards thru a good pocket and a big reach left with a kneescum. Figure out how to get the good pinch hold without dabbing on the rock behind. Climb up through the series of cool pockets and pinches to a fun but still engaging topout.

Location

The main line on the Crash Dummy boulder.

Protection

Pads, the landing zone is uneven and falls can be awkward so a few to fill in the crevaces are nice. Kneepad optional.

Really cool holds and interesting movement.

Too bad the start is so awkward to get into and the crux is not dabbing on the rock behind you.

I would agree that there are better V7's in the park. Jan 11, 2012
