Start on first pitch of Hidalgo Strangler, pass first set of anchors, go right toward the achors at the cave. 1st pitch is a really fun 5.11a. Second pitch goes up then left through obvious undercling and into the crux. This hard sequence is followed by easier climbing.
This climb gets shade until about 11:30 in the winter.

The upper 2/3rds goes at a number grade easier than the crux. The crux is overbolted because the clip stance was different so we added a bolt to suit. Skip as needed.

Bolting by Jake Shannon, Simeon Heimowitz, Rick Ross and Wes Green

Requires a 70m rope. Roughly 15 bolts.
