|The Ultimates/Mexican Pocket
An excellent offwidth. A big thanks to Darren Mabe for cleaning and prepping routes and then opening them to the community. The anchors are located on the first ledge on the right side of the crack, about 70 feet up.
About 40 feet right of Ultimate Dihedral. An obvious overhanging offwidth with a bolt on it. From Ultimate Finger Crack walk downstream for about 10 minutes. Before the canyon bends left take a look on the left wall.
1 bolt, 2 BD #6s, single set .5-1 camalots. Walk the 6s and keep one with you after the overhanging bit.

This route was thought to be harder by a number of people and may settle in harder than 11c. With my beta 5.11c feels accurate though get on it and post what you think!

Impressive work on the FFA, Eric! Wish I could have seen it go down!
I originally thought this battle would graze 5.12 if not for a few thank-God jugs at its steepest part. Desperate chicken-wings, brutal rattly fist stacks, and crafty leg work will see you through. The protection bolt is convenient at the crux to keep the rope out of your way as you take the tipped #6 for a walk.
Add this one to the local o-dubya circuit!
