The start trends toward the center/right side as the left has some unsound rock. Route finding involves avoiding the agaves and bad rock.

hole count = 0


Follow directions to south CAP bridge and march uphill to base. Route finding is best line available. You top out at a great V chimney which has outstanding trundle potential-worth the epic for the route. Descend to the south and west through gully.
