|Penitente - Inner Canyon
This is a decent warm-up climb on a slab just right of Apes in Estrus.
The climb is a ways past the Virgin painting and the Mercy Wall on the left. Directly across from the Brown Sugar area find the huecoed arete (Apes in Estrus); just right is a slab above a nice belay ledge/boulder. This is the line up the center.
4 bolts + anchor.

Nice 5.9 climb but short. Some moves will make you think. Probably one star.

I think "decent" is an understatement - a great route for the grade. Weird that you don't see more folks on it.
