Description Suggest change

A tricky and unstable starting move to get established on the bulge and a challenging finish over the lip at the top may make you let out a grunt or two, but the super easy climbing between will have you breathing easy. Although, you may also sigh because the pro is little bit of a let down (hopefully not literally).

If anybody knows the real name of this route, message me and I'll update it. There's also a chance that this is one of those high ball bouldering problems that the Socorro hard man crew gets upset about when somebody puts an anchor in at the top for TRing.

Location Suggest change

Five or ten feet left of Chewbacca on the East face of the formation. Across the 15 feet wide gully from Unknown Right. While walking up to Las Hermanas, locate the shiny anchor bolts at the right end of the ledge at the top of the low angle wall. No lowering hardware on the anchor hangers. Walk off carefully to the left at the top or bring some leaver biners.

Protection Suggest change

All gear. The thin crack at the bouldery start can be protected with a small nut or 0/00 Master Cam. Towards the top, a #2 Camelot can be placed off to the right in an undercling slot and the last moves can be protected relatively safely in an angled slot on the face 3 feet below the anchor (a yellow Master Cam is good for this spot). The rest is creative placements, none of which were all that good, but the climbing is really easy through the middle.
