Gear: small cams up to #3 BD, Stoppers. Morning shade. Start in the back of the dihedral and work your way up and out to the arete. Work up easy terrain until you encounter a steep bit of 5.11 guarding the entrance to the velodrome hueco. Once in the hueco, plug a #3 in the roof and rest up. When you feel ready to venture beyond the velodrome, crank up and out through some tough boulder problems with edges, locks, and hidden pockets.

SPOILER ALERT: Gear Beta: Take stoppers. You can climb up in the hueco and place a bomber size 8 (BD sizing) stopper then jump down before you commit to the moves. There's also a nice #4 BD stopper at the crux that I welded with a few falls.

Kinda surprised the line to the left of this beast is not bolted....
