Climb up some good plates and edges past the first bolt and into the huge hueco. An awesome 2-finger pocket gets you established at the overhanging bulge. Pull over the bulge on good holds and make a desperate escape left onto the thin slab after the last bolt.
Located amongst some formations to the northwest of the main LLUA Crag. See map on main page for directions.
4 bolts to 2 bolt anchor. Walkoff/downclimb an easy V0 boulder problem on the far northeast corner of the formation.

the climbing leading to the dustbowl is fun and harder than it looks, then the best part begins. Some strong cranking leads to a spicey topout. The last clip is difficult, however immaculately clean fall potential exists. Walkoff is far climbers right, downclimb an arete.

Two words for this route: SUPER FUN! The best part of the climb comes after the big pocket.
Glad to hear you two enjoyed the route. "Dustbowl" is a rather fitting description of the big hueco. Maybe I'll bring along a big broom to sweep it out next time I'm there.

I was pretty impressed by this climb. The bottom moves provide some elevation, and the last ten feet are slightly mysterious and fun. I thought the last clip was quite mellow, however: you pull up rope while hanging off a solid open-hand edge.
I'm curious about the face to the right. There appears to be a fun line there.
