Description 

This top-rope climb is located on the shady north side of Cueva, near the eastern end of the formation. It climbs up a broad black water-streak.

The 2-bolt anchor is located on a broad ledge which can be reached by climbing up one of the crack systems just to the right, or by scrambling up the low-angle slab further to the east to gain the ledge system.

The climb consists of thin face climbing on crimpers and tiny finger pockets. The crux is located 15ft off the ground, but the entire climb is pretty sustained.

Protection 

There is evidence that this climb was once a sport route; a single hanger-less bolt can be found 15ft off the deck. I didn't find any evidence of other bolts. The bolt anchors appear in good condition and one of the bolts sports a quick-link for rappelling.
