Watch for loose blocks
|Some areas require a guide.|
Good fun climb with a small roof section on p2. Third pitch is kind of run out with very little for placements. Bolts on third pitch are far to the left near a cactus, this is also the first set of bolts for the rap down.
To the right of Cake Walk. Hike up behind and slightly left of mushroom boulder. This route starts at the base of a heap of rocks that make a series of cracks.
Take small to medium cams and stoppers. There are bolts at the belay stations and rap rings to the left of the line.

P1 is has loose blocks and large cracks. Bring stoppers and cams to 3+" if you want to protect. Belay ontop of large pillar at 2 bolt anchor.
P2 is fun climbing and should stop there. Like it's neighbor to the left (Hueco Syndrome) going all the way to the summit just to walk off is a waste. Rap from the top of p2.

The second pitch is good and actually has pro. There are a couple of bolts, some big holds and you can stuff some cams in the arching roof area, maybe up to 3" cams.

I climbed this route a couple of weeks ago and thought it was a nice change from bouldering everyday. The rock on the third pitch is questionable, but the first two pitches are clean. The bottom crack pitch was good fun and well protected, but the second pitch seemed a little bold for a 5.7? Getting to the second pitch bolt required threading small nuts into some cracks in the huecos; it seemed more like mental protection... exciting. I would recommend this climb.

Rapelling the route is common but don't rap down P1 line, Go to climbers left a good bit. Good chance of getting your rope stuck otherwise.
