Please be karmically kind and do not disturb any resident wildlife.

a little awkward coming out of the hueco. if the lockoff move down low is the crux, 11a then.

the resident in the hueco has apparently moved out but it smells pretty bad in there. yet another reason you should pack out or properly bury your toilet paper

At first I thought it was kinda hard for 11a but I wasn't warmed up yet. On the second attempt it flowed really well and was a lot of fun. The crux is moving out of the heuco. Just pull a couple of moves out of the hueco and make a pretty easy run to the top.

The hardest move is under the hueco. The endurance crux is getting out of the hueco. Endurance was my weakness last time; now my endurance is better, and the lower crux felt harder to me.

Jenbongo how is the enduro crux coming out of a no hands rest?

Solid 11a. Seriously one of my favorite climbs in the Red - v2 (?) boulder problem up to the hueco and if you're shorter a tougher few moves getting out of the hueco then just a pump fest to the finish. Shocked that this is only three stars!
