Gus enjoying some Hood Love.


Start at the the base of the cave below 'the hood'.
A short slab deposits you at the base of said hold. Climb awesome tufas and pockets on long moves - you will find no crimps here.
Just when you think you'll get away with an easy ever steepening jug-haul, things get tricky right before the chains. Make a long move to a right hand you wish was better, stab for a slot, and you will then be rewarded with a bottomless pocket jug at the anchors.
The only thing not so great about this climb is that it is over too quickly, and that just means you should climb it twice.


Currently the leftmost route in the Bee Cave, and one of the two in the cave proper.


5 bolts + anchors with lower offs.

I agree that the only thing about the route is that it is over to quick. Good warm up for the area and good addition!
