San Jons Picos, c. 5.12c.


Just past vertical climbing up a beautifull blue streak. Fun and pumpy climbing on flat to rounded holds leads to a crux near the top where the holds get slightly worse. A very pretty line.


The second route from the right end of the secture which ends in a chimmney/ cleft feature.


Bolts and a bolted anchor.

It seemed a good bit run out to the second to last bolt and appeared a bolt had been removed in that section. Clean fall though. :-)

Totally. I didn't have the reach to grab that hold at the top of the run-out statically, so I had to kind of dead-point for it. I only missed it once, but it was an epic fall!
My partner at the time, who was working on Makach Walu (sp, sorry), said that San Johns was harder than that route. Pretty sure he was just having a bad day, but it is amazing. It was so much fun climbing this route.

Great climbing! Probably 12a climbing until the crux. A little bit polished and slopey, with a powerful crux at the top, but no stopper moves.
