BETA PHOTO: A topo photo showing I Came As A Rat (left) and [[10...


A fun, positive right-angling crack with no feet leads up for about 10 feet to a wide slot and a decent stance. Despite the appearance you don't need big gear. Pull up and right out of the slot along the crack and then test your flexibility with a big leg stretch left to a good ledge and a rest. An all-too-short perfect hand crack goes up for eight feet to easier ground to the top and the tree for an anchor.

When Kit Carson passed away in May 1868, a month after his wife Josefa, his last words were "Adios Compadres".


A few feet right of I Came As A Rat past a big roof. Look for the tree at the top that serves as the anchor. A sling and single locking biner on the tree provide the anchor. A flat rock with the number "10" spelled out using tiny rocks may be at the start.

Note that we *think* this route is left of Man in the Arena but we didn't find that route so we're not completely sure. Just look for the big roof and tree and you'll be there.


Single .5 to #2 camalots. Possibly doubles if you want to really sew it up.

Vaya Con Dios... Great work guys. Probably a nice final pitch to head out of the climbing park below. Adios Compadres in a word.
