False Hueco Traverse classic V2 in Joshua Tree.


SDS. Start as for False Hueco, but traverse right. good heel hooks move you quickly. crux at the end.


pad and spotter to move it.

Thought this was a really fun route, great for V1-V2 climbers. Will hit this again. Also the wind really likes to blow in this area in the winter

One of my favorite problems in The Outback Area! Watch out for sand and dirt falling into your eyes while on the cave part. More than once did i have crap fall in my eyes haha!

Holds broken on the boulder and more chossy than before now. But still super fun!

Excellent rock quality, very grippy even as its completely white from all that chalk. Good movement with a late crux. Pumpier than expected but a couple heel hooks make the difference.

Great climb! I found it easier than the normal False Hueco route, considering my height. Will definitely be back for this one

The jug rail came off sometime on the morning of Jan 14, significantly altering the problem.
