This is the second to last route from the left side of the wall. Start up on a small ledge in front of a large hollow hueco. Six bolts lead up and to the left. The moves are steep and dynamic. This route felt a little harder than the guidebook rating of 5.11b.

The route is probably more like 11.c but its only one move at the start. If you make it past that you get big rests and the top isn't to hard if you trend around left on the arete.

It feels harder if you're shorter, as that one move near the bottom is a big one.

maybe somethings broken on it, but man this one felt hard for the grade today....and the upper portion has a nice little bite to it just to keep you honest!
