Start by making a big throw to a nice hueco. Powerful moves in the beginning to awefully thin sections at top.

4 out of 5 stars mother, jugs and speed...

well, OK maybe not quite that (70s movie reference with Bill Cosby and Rachel Welch), but it does have 3 styles of climbing in a short space - jugs, crack and thin face.

5 out of 5 stars rusty bolts on excellent route. Stellar views of the river.

The wall shapes are really cool and the climbing is fun. 10d is wacko: the original grade in the early guidebooks was 11b (see pg 144-145 of Austin Rock). Texas Limestone II reported 10+. Wrong! Actually I'm undecided between 11a and b until I link it. We had trouble trusting the old bolts and opted to hang to avoid lead falls.
