Climbing just the right crack of Hydroponics, Coyo...


Climb the right crack only of the two cracks that make up Hydroponics. Climb directly up to this crack from underneath avoiding the leftmost start of Hydroponics. Short but super fun finger crack sequence. Cool small two tips lock at crux near top.

Excellent! Small to mid-sized wires and cams and smallest of the tricam (White,Black, Pink). Same anchors on top as Hydroponics of course.

In my opinion, aside from Upper Diagonal, this is the finest 5.9 in the state.
