Next route right of Bathtub Mary. Climb through a thin beginning then mantel into a hueco. Crawl out of your hole to be rewarded with less stressful climbing to the chains. Use the cleaning draw on the last bolt to avoid swinging into the tree. Head right at the fifth bolt for a 5.11d variation.

maybe I missed something but climbing after hueco rest felt harder than before it

I agree with ptrgeorge. The top of this route is significantly harder than the rest. Didn't feel a single move harder than 10d until trying to sprint to the chains.

This is a great companion to Bathtub Mary. Both routes are comparably fun and difficult, and both routes lead to the great hueco rest. If you have a group going climb both lines and let the leaders hang in the hueco together!
