A classic route. Aside from the stellar pinnacle top of this route, its obvious splitter crack is also a defining aspect of the route. Fun, but stiff and can seem longer or more sustained than it appears from the base. Rarely climbed, this route saw nasty rockfall during its FA (sangre = blood) and to the climbers left of the route EXTREME LOOSENESS still exists, amongst other potential route lines.
Standing under the Gold Gulley (a 3rd/4th class trailed gully past the Goldband that provides top access and walk-down) to the climbers left of the gully a pinnacle topped wall that looks deceivingly short from the base is the Sendero de Sangre Tower. Aside from the top-rope Shangri-La (areas extreme west edge wrapping to the north face of the formation) Sendero is the last established route east to west on the band. Many cliffs (single-pitch) of undeveloped rock are between Sendero and Shangri-La
