|The Ultimates/Mexican Pocket
This is an enjoyable and rare moderate addition and warm-up to the Ultimate circuit, in a stunning location.
The hardest moves are off the ground. If you are resourceful, you can reach a good nut placement and starting finger lock. Continue up the left facing corner hand crack with three more steep and short cruxes including a brief wide section near the top. Bolted anchor is on a sloping ledge near small tree underneath obvious squeeze.
P.P. is on the south facing side, downstream from White Wedding less than 5 minutes and before the deep pool drop-off.
to protect for the grade: a medium stopper, a couple finger size cams, 2-3X C4 #0.5-2, a couple #3s, and even a #4 is handy.

I wish I had a #4 to protect the squeeze. It fits in a sandy horizontal crack at start of squeeze. I downclimbed it and gave him the lead; Mike used a #3 instead;
