Aesthetic and clean, El Face-o-Diablo will somehow leave you feeling a little dirty?

Deceptively difficult! What looks like a walk in the park, climbs more like a mugging. A thin and slippery start greets the unsuspecting climber. Hard to hold on too, the beginning for most will unleash a brutal beating. Thin crimps, shallow side-pulls, awkward feet, and off-balance movement make this more of a battle than a climb. If you can make it to the first bolt, keep your guard up, its not over!

Most always run as a top-rope, this route can be led, rehearsal is advised as the first bolt is well above the crux moves and about 15-18 feet high.


Set a few feet right of El Cracko Diablo, this route is the clean and cut face with bolts connecting to the same anchor.


Three bolts and an a shared chain anchor. If top roping, use draws and the bolts which serve as invaluable directionals.

Why is the first bolt on this so high? Seems stupid and dangerous to me

As of 10/11, the first bolt is starting to pull out.
