Description 

This route has a couple of things going against it, the base is fully vegetated with typically nasty plants, the top is covered in cactus, and there is a wall behind the climb which detracts the the climb aesthetically...that being said.
The climbing on this route is TERRIFIC! Really fun liebacking leads to a unique roof with a mono pocket (yes a mono pocket at blue mounds!)
Steep and Fun!

Location 

This route is on Hidden buttress about 8 ft right of the hidden direct. Bushwack your way uphill from the acute corner. This climb has several trees at the base which must be climbed through.

Protection 

TR, might want a helmet if you plan on falling into the wall behind you.
