BETA PHOTO: Piton power is the route in the middle

Description 

This route is on a sunny slab on the south side of la Cueva, near a few sport routes. It climbs directly up the face just to the right of a small crack system.


Protection 

6 drilled pitons and 2 bolts protect this route. The quality and age the pro is questionable. The pitons are all rusty but appear sound. Two of the pitons can be backed up using small cams.

The anchor consists of 2 bolts and a drilled piton. Poot slings and rap rings can be found here.

double rope rappel or walk off?

Single rope rap gets you down, but it's a fairly long route requiring a 60m rope. Make sure you knot the ends of your role for lowering or rapping. The walk off is a little exposed.

Thanks, i lead piton power today but the bolts were kind of run out near the top, still a fun climb though. I decided to walk off and it was pretty straight forward
