Comments: I really enjoyed this route, has good variation, but the large flakey triangular block that the climber in the photo is clinging to looks pretty sketchy, sounds completely hollow and seems pretty close to detached. It also appears to have very little at it's cracked base holding it in place,

Use caution.

Comments: I'd give it 4 starts except the route needs loose rock trundled, and rap anchors sorted. We took an extra rope for descent, but another party had real trouble with rope length and actually untied to down climb. Not a great option still 500'+ off the deck.

Otherwise, great multipitch. Second pitch is 5 stars!

Comments: Great pitch. Relatively hard for EPC 5.10a rating

My 70m mammut infinity did NOT reach the ground. Belayer climbed up with knotted end in the belay device so i could lower to around the first bolt, then solo down climb from there.

Knot your rope!

Comments: Seems this has been rebolted to the right, or a new line to the right has been installed. There's a clip of the first rusty angle iron bolt, then right up on a large ledge and the new bolt line. Felt hard relative to other similarly graded routes at EPC. (including harder than Mexico in flames) Maybe 5.11c?

Comments: Did both of the first pitches today (along with the rest of the climb), Gusada negra is good climbing, and quite sustained. I didn't find it "ugly", though not all nice and new and clean. Many holds are polished/slick which adds a bit more difficulty. I agree that it is the headier lead.

Also agree, I wouldn't repeat the whole route. The interesting climbing is in the variations of the first pitch.

Beware, if you climb to the top. there is a fair bit of loose rock. Easy to dislodge missles.
