Description 

Start at the hueco with the skull and climb straight up on the right side of the arete, aiming for the nice rest and stance on the arete at the 3rd bolt. From here, using the holds on the lip of the overhang, traverse out right and eventually dyno to a great jug (crux). After clipping the 5th bolt, 1 more strenuous move puts you at a nice stance. From here, head to the arete and up to the shuts on easier terrain. This climb has really nice movement. It's mostly easier climbing except for a few moves in the middle.


Location 

From the approach trail, continue right along the cliff, past some breakdown until the routes start up again. Eventually you'll come to a large clearing with some steep routes with lots of bail biners. Locate the hueco with a skull inside of it to the right of an arete.


Protection 

6 bolts, shuts.
