Description 

There are two crux sections here. The first is at the very start of the climb. I don't want to give away too much because it's fun to try and figure out the beta. I'll just say that it's a huge move to a side-pull with no feet.
The other crux is at the very top. The climb goes from kinda slab to strait vertical for the last 10' or so. this 10' section has small knobs...great for feet, not so great for hand holds. There is a small roof that has a bomber undercling you'll use to throw a left hand out to a small crimper hold then you're at the anchor.


Location 

This climb is at the very bottom of El Niņo Wall. To get to the climb, rap down if you know the beta on that. Otherwise, there is a trail that skirts the wall to the West. Follow this down 'till the trail becomes level and start looking for a large crack that shoots up the wall. The climb is just to the left of the crack, behind the small trees.


Protection
