Pulling the huecos.


Razor Hueco Arete is a great looking line if you like jugs. Slightly overhanging at the start, then it straightens up. The line does not go directly up the arete, but some outside holds are used. Great protection and wonderful for climbers wanting to break the 5.9 barrier into 5.10.


3 bolts to the anchors.

I believe this route is only 2 stars, because the last bolt on this route is way off route. The huecos and 10a climbing keep you on the arete, while the last bolt pulls you 7 feet to the right.

Look close at the picture and you will see the bolts line up to the right of the climber (me), and I am not climbing the arete, nor am I off route.

Wow. I guess I was way right, meaning on the arete. I remember that clip being a bit dicey for someone who leads at the 10a level. It is a fun route. One should definitely try it.
