bolted chimney

Description 

Located on western end of the Shady North side of La Cueva, this climb is a wide chimney with three bolts in the upper section. Fairly straightforward and excellent climbing on solid rock.

Protection 

small trad for the first 10m, then 3 bolts in the wider section of the shimney. Bolt anchors.

Climbing on the face, right side of crack, is pretty fun. some loose rock but not bad. we nick-named this the butt-crack for obvious reasons...so if you need help finding it you know what to look for
