Description 

This is the classic route on the cliff. Look for the hueco half way up the route. The Crux is very crimpy and technical and involves a high step and long balancy reach.


Location 

Half way down the wall. There is a large Hueco half way up. You will also notice more chalk on this one than most of the other routes as this is the most popular route on the cliff.


Protection 

bolts

There is a note written in chalk at the base of this route about one of the bolts being bad. I was told that the bolt walked halfway out just from rope movement. Hopefully someone with a bolt kit wants to do a little community service.

I went out to replace the reported bad bolt today, but all it needed was tightened down. Most likely it loosened up from all the whippers on this crux bolt.

Cool fun climbing leads to BOULDER crux. Not sport climbing crux but boulder crux! Excellent route worth the skin for sure!
