Choss-a-neer to the first bolt (stick clip recommended) at a body length roof. Make a big move left hand to a sloper at the lip of the roof and from here it is a long V6 or so ending at the 3rd bolt. Big moves, sloping holds and some body english are required to get through this sequence. From the 3rd bolt it is roughly 12a or b to the chains with another red point crux pulling the final roof at the very top. I would recommend stick clipping the 2nd bolt and leaving the first unclipped as the boulder problem moves through the 2nd bolt and a fall from the last hard move would leave you most likely swinging into your belayer.


Located to the left of El Hondo and before the dungeon area.
