nicole on the Hueco prob


This is a fun face problem involving a tricky start. The crux is getting off the ground and getting your feet to stick. Start next to the right arete right in front of a small circular hueco (the origins of the name) use the hueco or other small hands and put your feet on and beg for them to stick from here move up the face on increasingly good holds.


On the same boulder as "Classic V0" about 7 feet right of the down climb, "The Crimp Problem V3" should be behind you when you start this problem.


Pad(s) and a spotter.

I've always been told that the arete is off for this climb (that's also what it says in Bryce's guide) if you want it to be v1, if you use the arete then its a v0, but whatever, either way is fun.
