Description [Suggest Change]

Long reaches at the bottom lead to a mix a good and fair rock in the middle to nice finish. All routes on this tower share same anchor.

Location [Suggest Change]

Main tower with three lines. This is the right most line.

Extremely reachy at the bottom, 2 of the shorter people in our group had a pretty frustrating time getting through the first set of moves. Once past the big 3 moves at the bottom the rock above is sketchy and dirty as hell. I understand that it will clean up but there was what seemed to be a higher than expected number of holds that had that lovely hollow knock test to them. I'd avoid it if you are a 10 climber but if you are there for Hueca Del Sol, you could easily top rope it with a redirect just below the big blob flake that is on Hueca. If you are a 12 climber hitting the trio of climbs as warmups, you might as well give it a lap. Jul 19, 2014
