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.

Comments: Generally agree with 5.9+, but for potrero, could easily be called 5.10a.

Comments: Great fun. I found the crux to be pretty continuous for 25-30'. Third pitch is fantastic, great airy position, and pretty continuous with a little stinger near the top. Just excellent!

Comments: My most un-favorite route after climbing 4 days at El Potrero Chico. Run out to a joke of a junk old "ring bolt", somewhat suspicious bolt higher up, and some chossy breakable holds. Quality routes to either side. Not worth the trouble.
