Heel Hook-Toe Hook Move

Description 

The crux involves utilizing a toe hook-heel hook compression move to get your right hand over and up on a better hold. Some very fun and different movement relative to the redundant pocketed limestone found in the area.

Just like the Boulder's Description, this specific side of it is usually moist, mossy and muddy during the spring and summer. If you find it on a dry day, you should not pass this climb up.

Location 

Start with both hands matched as far back as you can get in the cave on a large low placed jug. move left using 2 finger side pulls and slopers which eventually lead you up and over for the top out. You can walk over to where CCB and MBB meet for an easy scramble down back to your pads.
