Comments: I've done this route approximately ten times now and still ALWAYS find it exciting and fun. One of the nicest ways to climb it is to follow the first pitch and continue on leading the second pitch. Since the belay at the top of the first is off to the right you can just keep climbing without ever stopping at the belay stance. Just continue on up and do the whole thing in one nice continuous climb.

I also believe this route is definitely climbable even on the hottest days if you wait for the wa... more >>

Comments: Great route, good movement. I found I liked to bring my stick clip for the start. Doesn't really let up and I would say there are not any rests. Just enough there to clip and maybe grab chalk. Climbs more like a long boulder problem. Consensus seems to be 5.14a.

Comments: Instead of ending the third pitch at the 4 bolts way out left another option is to build an anchor while still in the crack which leaves the 4th pitch a straight shot up without any traversing involved. There is a good stance here and is not awkward one bit. We didn't feel like we needed tri-cams on the 4th pitch. We placed a few cams, a nut, and threaded some holes and stayed pretty safe.
The approach from the geological site was definitely the crux of the day. We did the raps with one 60m rop... more >>

Comments: A nice easy way to do the bottom section is to clip the first two bolts and then lower into the pit and top rope the bottom section and then lead the rest. A good option for the belayer in winter months.

Comments: I don't agree with the statement that this is the best .10d in the park. It's good, but probably not the best.

Comments: Re-bolted in January 2009. Expect "bomber" bolts.


Location: CA : Central Coast : Pinnacles National Monument : West Side : Machete Ridge Area : Cuidado! (5.10c)
By: Kyle Queener When: Jan 30, 2009

Comments: Also Cuidado can mean "Watch out" or a "Head's up" kind of meaning. Very fitting for the holds you'll be pulling out on the way up. This route is open, but try to climb it on weekdays while no one is in the caves.

Comments: This is an okay route. I would recommend Hot Lava Lucy before this. A good route if your breaking into 5.12 climbing, since its basically a top rope.
