A worthwhile variation to Rincon pitch 2. From the belay at the end of Rincon P1, ascend a 20' series of broken corners in the left wall of the large Rincon dihedral; this crux section is strenuous, esp. placing gear, but the moves aren't too hard. As the corner ends, pull onto a slab. From here you can either go left into Center Route's second pitch or follow OTC straight up the slab. The slab option is nice low angle face climbing up to 5.9 with some big runouts. At some point traverse back right from the slab into the the Rincon corner. We traversed about 20' below the anchors at the end of Rincon P2 which was fun but required some work before, during and afterwards to keep the rope running well. A smoother alternative might be to continue up the slab until level with the belay and then traverse easily right.

There is a little loose rock in the crux section.


RPs to Blue Camalot. Some long runners and plenty of quickdraws.
