  • Description 

    This is a great line on the left side of Hueco. Most of the climb is easy with the first few moves being the hardest. Be very confident at the grade as this is soft sandstone so gear can never be completely trusted.

    Climb up the hand crack to the ledge. Continue up an offwidth crack to the top. Belay off trees at the top.


    15ft left of Swiss Cheese . It is the hand crack in the corner leading to an offwidth to the right of an overhanging roof


    .5-4 Camalots though I'd like to have a second #4's or a #5 for the OW, hexes, and perhaps a few nuts. Slings or cord for the anchor.
