|Penitente - Inner Canyon
This is another great Penitente 12a. It starts with some uncharacteristically (for Penitente) big holds, then climbs nice pockets at the crux before rolling over onto the slab on crimps.
This lies just past the Virgin painting, where the canyon makes a bend to the right.

Pretty tough through the 2nd bolt, but eases up a bit after that. Thin slabby finish keeps things interesting.

A good route, worth a go or two. I wasn't sure if the intention of the route was to go right to the crack above the second bolt or go straight up on heinous crimps. Either way felt similar in grade though.
