Half Route- 5.10+

SETTING UP RAPPEL, SHOWING HOW OVERHANGING THE ROUTE IS.
  • Half Route- 5.10+/
  • As the name implies, this route is half the length as Huecos Rancheros and Namaste. Same character though, just not as overhung for as long. Hug jugs the whole way. One small rest before the last bolt as you can slide into a huge body sized hueco. Otherwise a pump fest for the grade to be sure. Keep it moving is what worked for me. Single rope will make the rappel, no worries.
