Crux felt like the first few moves. It was easy street after that.

This route is pretty fun, but super juggy, def a good place for a beginner to learn how to lead...

I know it's bolts, but i was on this about a month ago and recall a few spinning hangers and one of the lower bolts is in hollow rock. Well protected but be aware of these bolts for extra safety. Climb on.

We climbed yesterday with air temps around 106 degrees Fahrenheit, the rock was mostly in the shade and much cooler. The best part about climbing here during this time of the year is that you have the whole valley to yourself; we did not even see the border patrol making their rounds.

There were two spinning hangers but they were not sequential, I believe that it was the 2nd and 5th. The holds on this route are amazing. The first move, a step across from a boulder to the rock face, made me nervous so I stick-clipped the first bolt.

Fun route with great jugs. A welcome break from the friction routes on Sundagger Wall.
