Description

This Fred Nicole test piece will offer up a challenge for anyone climbing the grade.

Stack pads or get a lift and start matched on the lowest good crimp. For most people the crux is sticking the decent pocket out right. This move requires tension and accuracy while using a left hand crimp and worse-than-it-looks right foot. A desperate stab into the fingerlock guards the last reach to the lip before topping out.

Classic and hard, Power of Silence shouldn't be missed on your trip to Hueco Tanks.

Location

This alcove is just north of Sign of the Cross and straight up the hill (south) from the Diaphanous cave.

Protection

The landing is perfectly flat. Two pads are probably enough.
