A popular but somewhat controversial newer addition to Morning Glory Wall. Placed somewhat tightly between Five Gallon Buckets and Light on the Path, not everyone thought this was a necessary addition to the wall. The moderate grade and fun moves have made it one of the more popular routes in a very heavily used area. Edges, pockets and knobs are all a part of this route. Crux is about 2/3rds up.


On the left side of Morning Glory Wall, just right of 5 Gallon Buckets.


8 bolts and Mussy hooks at the anchor

I agree that this route is a bit of a squeeze, but being that it roughly doubles the climbing capacity of this very popular wall I think it's a good addition.

Even so, expect there to be a queue for it on busy days.

The second pitch as you work your way right from Five Gallon. For 5.9 it may feel a bit techy for beginners, and in the sun the holds tend to really sweat so bring your super chalk on hot days. But a nice addition and one more pitch to throw in the mix on the hueco wall.

A great alternative to 5 gallon buckets for a warm up, and possibly more fun as well.

Honestly loved this climb. Really fun route that seems to follow a pattern of a couple sustained crimpy moves and then a huge jug to rest on. Has a few genuinely cool movements, Id climb this before 5 gallon buckets any day.

This route was quite fun, moreso then the neighboring 5 Gallon Buckets. Good warm up or cool down.
