Good little climb that is often overlooked. Almost immediately you feel in it. A must for thin face lovers!

Climb up into the small alcove that has a crack running out of it to the right. Follow the crack right until it ends and climb up the gripping face to a small stance and gear. Continue up and left to a stance below an overhang. Climb up any way you wish (try straight up for extra fun). Continue up easy climbing to the top of the block. Descend by scrambling off the back, or continue up Casa Emilio.


On the approach trail to Casa Emilio (yellow trail) you will see a clean face with a crack on your left just before the trail goes up and right.


Mostly small to mid-size stuff. Standard rack is plenty.

Super cool face climbing. Thought provoking right from the start with good gear (you get to place it comfortably and then go).

Small gear abundant but if top piece pops, will you stop before the ledge? Probably..
