BETA PHOTO: Start of D&O; just right of El Cautivo.
Not my route, but to help clarify the lines, I climbed the first 2 pitches a few weeks ago. P3 looked tough if it was still the rt-most line of bolts up the dark headwall. (Someone could further clarify this; I ran outta time.)
Just right of El Cautivo, starting out through a tree, up a steep face toward the arching crack. Tricky move stepping right up onto the overlap, pass 2 more bolts and run it out to the ledge. Lin climbed the trough left of the crack, was able to reach the last 2 bolts and thought she could have placed some extra gear. 160'
P2 starts to the left at a flake, then up the wall to the next ledge. 160' We rap'd with twin 50 meter ropes.
(P3 Headwall or left up face?)
QDs. Double bolt anchors.

This route is right of El Cautivo. Didn't know the name. The first pitch is excellent and has a stiff move at the crack. You can A0 this move. The second pitch starts up a block. Hard clip near start. I think the third pitch goes up a steep sporty face. Not sure how the route ends. I climbed unprotected face up and left to join the last pitch of El Cautivo. Instead if you traverse left on the ledge i think you can find the anchor for the last pitch of El Cautivo.
