The route.


Climb the overhanging face covered with shallow huecos to a highball finish.


Crash pad or two and a spotter. Mind the block on the left side of the landing.


This is NW of the small parking area ~130 yards, east and slightly downhill of V4. There is a placard at bottom of boulder with "V5-" written on it.

SDS lower-middle right with lowest hueco for left and sloping crimp right and then going straight up to shallow dishes and then left to the jug hueco with the left and then fire to the lip is definitely V5-. Similar finish to Jingus Bells at Hueco Tanks, but not as stiff a grade.
On a new note, the boulder at the base is now on the right side of the landing and out of the way for the "business".

This isn't highball. The problem is only like 10 feet.

Highball is a perception. And if your vision is this skewed, in the pics with me in the red shirt, I must be really short...but I'm not, I'm 6 foot tall, with a +6 ape index.
