Poroto Gringo


Climb starts directly under the first bolt. Climb up to a ledge and move a it left. Clip the first bolt from the ledge if you can. Pull on the left hand sloper to the jugs above and 2nd bolt.

The middle of the route is the most fun and the reason you want to try this climb. The vertical basalt is a wavy lava flow with shallow and deep pockets as well as horizontal and vertical ledges. Green and yellow lichen paints much of the wall making it a psychedelic pump!


Look for a series of finger cracks with lots of grassy plants growing out of them on a slab to the far left of Armora Gedel. Poroto Gringo starts a bit to the left of these cracks. You can't miss the first bolt on a lip above a small alcove.


6 bolts.

2 bolt anchor with chains
