Same start as Isaiah. Once you reach the ledge take the double cracks in the left facing dihedral up to the top. The exit is a little tricky. This climb is to the right of Isaiah.


Protection up to 3 inches.

A great fun climb.
There are alternative exits on this at the top
that are not done very often.

My favorite is the direct finish.
Instead of doing the left hand traverse past the cacti,
you step right and up to a roof.

From the roof you can either go straight up into some good hand but steep hand jams or you can pull into some face moves to the right via a slanting small ramp (that takes some gear.)

Did this recently and was surprised by the steepness.
I remember 3rd classing this long ago and sure don't
recall it being this steep.

Great hand jams and stems. It's a great warm up for Isiah.

This is syndicato granitica 5.7. Many moves height dependent. Not reaching higher holds increases grade .1 or .2. Exit move is 5.8. Roof is bomber protected with BD C4 .5(purple). Great route
