Possibly the best route at Hueco for rock quality and exposure! I highly recommend reading Sherman's guide to Hueco for a very entertaining story about this climb's first ascent. It starts to the right of Sea of Holes on a stack of rocks.
P1: Like many climbs at Hueco, the first bolt is a ways off the ground and is a no-fall situation. Follow huge huecos and flakes with a couple slings for protection until a bolt protects a short 5.9 section. P2: This is the pitch from which the climb gets its name. From the belay, go up a ramp about ten feet and then down climb a right facing corner til you get your foot on a good ledge. Keep going down until your hands are on th ledge and then step out right into space and towards the obvious pillar. Belay on the pillar or keep going up and right on spectacular holds and wild exposure toward a bolt. Pass the bolt and follow the easiest line to the top.
