A big step up in difficulty from Satori right off the bat. The pitches are long (up to 50m) so you’ll want 18-20 draws plus two ropes to descend (move left at the second rap and watch for loose rock).
Located to the right of Satori by ~10-15 meters.
Hike up the mining road for a couple of minutes and turn left on the trail for El Bobo. Follow the red painted arrows/dots up past El Bobo (the dunce-hat-shaped formation) and continue up the third class ridge. When you get to the red arrows pointing in different directions head right for the Zapatista route and straight for 3 Stone Place (and Satori).
20 bolts + anchors.

first pitch can be climbed then escaped by rapping down to Satori P1 anchors then rap to ground. Did this as there was a big line of people on Satori so did P1 3SP instead and then got rained off.
I thought the 11c grade was a bit soft. Great first pitch but doesnt get climbed enough so expect a little dirt and snags going thru the bushes. Cruxes are bolted tight (at least on the pitch i climbed) Cant wait to go back and do the whole route.
Love that place!

This is a good adventure on decent rock. With super thin face climbing and many endurance roof moves, this will definitely hold your attention all the way to the top. Sure, it is overgrown, but that is part of the fun.
