BETA PHOTO: Gunk Pumps is the left line, it follows the crack ...

Description 

Gunks Pump follows a left-leaning crack to a bulge at the left end of the wall. The crack is mellow, the bulge is the crux, and the setting is killer. The rock is a little questionable at the crux, pull down, not out, on the jug in the headwall.

Location 

Hike up canyon of Razor Hueco Arete for about 500 feet until you get to a rock bench often seeping water, go right, hike for a bit until you get to an aspen grove with a cool wall above it.

Protection 

4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Just be careful. There is deck potential until you clip the second bolt. If you can already climb 11, you'll be fine, but I wouldn't have this be someone's first 11 lead.
