  • Description 

    This small area only contains 3 routes, two of which aren't very good a V0+ and V9. The third route is the ultra classic Crash Dummy V7. Gets a lot of shade so not a great area when it's super cold in Hueco.

    Getting There 

    This area is along the base of West Mountain near Star Power boulder. Your guide should be able to find it easily.

Start laying down up on a shelf with a heel / toe cam and hands on a left facing shelf. Climb leftwards thru a good pocket and a big reach left with a kneescum.

    While there are only 3 problems listed in the guide book, there are most definitely more in the area.
