  • Description 

    For all intents and purposes, this is the central line punching straight out the middle of the lower right sector of the Upper Ghetto. Coated in chalk and eye-catchingly direct, this is a Ghetto classic extraordinaire.

    Walk about 30 feet along the base of the slot from the staging area until you're eye level with the twin bathtub/huecos. Now sit. A hard tug on miserable pebble/crimps and a powerful throw gain the huecos. Head straight up an incipient crack for another five feet until you're at a sloping horizontal.

    The original problem, and the V7 way, takes the leftmost set of holds off the horizontal, hitting an incut razor for the left hand and pawing a scoop for the right before some trickery helps you power up into a sloping gaston. Surf right to a good horn or hueco, and punch for the lip.

    You can either step off or continue along the lip for a linkage pump.

    An easier advent, sometimes mistakenly referred to as Ghetto Boys, climbs straight up and slightly right from the horizontal via a friendlier sequence (V6) and is the path of least resistance straight out the cave. It's probably best to think of this as the easy finish to After Hours.
