We were debating the merits of bolting one of the oil companies 100 year old steel ladders inside the hueco of this thing, or maybe just some gymnast rings. It may be possible to climb out of it and it could be easy, not sure. Hopefully someone will enjoy this climb. The climbing above and below the hueco is really good.

Ladders are for losers, but gymnastics rings are for winners. GYMNASTIC RINGS! GYMNASTIC RINGS! GYMNASIC RINGS!

I think you should drill in some mono pockets that's my vote.

Gymnastic ring sounds good! And anyone can remove it eventually (it's better than drill a holds!)

Didn't Adam climb this already?

Worked on this last Saturday. There's a bird nest on the right side of the hueco with little baby chicks. Mama was pretty mad I was in there. Probably best to wait til they've cleared out (summer?)
