Don't get your body into the seemingly fun hueco at the top.

The hueco is pretty dirty, but everyone I've climbed with on this route has used the hueco. In fact, the moves out of the hueco are some of the funnest ones on the route.

It would be somewhat hard to not use the hueco on this route, all though the no hands rest makes this one of the easiest 11's in the RRG.

I didn't think it was worth the energy to get into the hueco- just pulled through and fired for the top. Pretty pumpy that way, but full value!

Get in the hueco and enjoy the sit down rest. The moves out are easy. Please add a full description of the climb when posting. Kipp Tremmel Karen Clark 2005 on the FA.

Super Fun Climb, the slabby start is probably the most demanding part in my opinion. The hueco is a pretty unique feature, and I imagine the feature that gave this climb its name, so taking a sit down rest in it was pretty much a requirement, and it also made the top section super easy. The moves out of the hueco are fun and exposed!!

Do it, Take a BAth with Mary!!

"Didnt think it was worth the energy getting into the hueco" lol

It takes zero effort getting into that thing. You traverse 5 feet on a jug rail and then crawl right in. What an odd comment...

Cruxy slab at bottom, juggy and fun at the top. Love the hueco - super fun moves coming out of it.

Very good route; so varied. Inside of heuco is now quite clean and the view out in the Fall is very nice. Seems like avoiding getting into the heuco is bypassing the line of weakness. Lower slab crux is delicate and techy while there are two burly moves to big jug high up. Fun all around and well bolted.

My first outdoor 5.11 and I onsighted it. Amazing line, favorite route by far. Obvious crux, one big move around the fourth bolt when exiting the slab section. Don't miss out on the hueco rest before a juggy last 15 feet. Awesome undercling to get out of the hueco.
