Description 

This is the route on the arete to the right (15' and east) of the start of Mexican Crack. Start the route with large holds on the arete next to the trail, that eventually become balancy. Clip a fixed pin, and commit to a balance move. Clip a brand new 1/2" bolt then finish the route. This route joins the 3 Amigos Crack to its anchors.


Location 

Directly across from the start to Mexican Crack.


Protection 

A small RP will supplement the fixed pin. One quickdraw for the bolt. Some small-to-medium cams are needed to finish 3 Amigos Crack.

Old-school slab sandbagger. Book says it's .11a but who can tell. Is it harder than Mind Blow or easier than Prepositional Phrase?
