BETA PHOTO: El Nino (#17) and surrounding crack routes, ...


"...I am 'El Nino', Spanish for: 'The Nino'..." - Chris Farley

This short route offers challenging slab moves on decent rock. If only it were longer! Begin just left of the chimney, head up to the first break, then veer left to the bolt line. It is possible to start directly, but its much harder. Unfortunately nowhere near as entertaining as the late, great Farley.


Right end of Midtown, between two gear routes.
