DescriptionBouldery route on excellent water-polished rock, located on the block just left of Pumping Huecos.
Start in the crack, pull onto a slab. A very enjoyable compression sequence through the bulge at, and just after, bolt 3 comprises the crux. Clip the 4th bolt, and top out to the picnic ledge. This is followed by 2 more bolts worth of easier climbing on huecos to the Pumping Huecos anchor. Can top-rope/hang draws after climbing the latter route — in fact, this climb has been top-roped in this manner for many years.
Gets afternoon shade.
