Solo up to the ledge beneath the heavily pocketed wall - weird and scary (R).

Two bolt anchor for belay.

Launch up the overhang and wall above (crux) to the slabby last section.

Basically a two-pitch climb. Rappel down from the climb to the two-bolt anchor, then a short rappel back to the ground.


The big pocketed wall.


Seven bolts, two bolt and sling anchor.

In the most recent Bishop Area guidebook, Marty lists the route as Hueco Thanks, FA John Tuttle and Alan Hirahara in the 90's. Did Gary solo this line first?
