Nuria getting a sweet swim-up start

Description 

A low-water climbing area (oct-april)

Deep-water soloing abounds from 5.5 to 5.12+

Many hangers missing, and nasty slipery rock can be encountered.

A great swimming spot during the summer, the hike isn't more than 5 min.

Don't park here late, unless you want to sacrifice your car to some locals.


Getting There 

Take Whippoorwill road follow paved road almost to the end, take a left and park then follow the dirt road until you reach a fork (bonfire pit) take a left and go down into the cliff breakdown to reach the start for many climbs.

Anyone familiar with Don Miron? The long reach just above the little roof seemed hard for the grade. Anyone want to privately send me the sequence through there? I was sort of hoping that a foothold had broken off that made it harder - there was a little section of broken rock that may have been a right foot but I have no idea if that was before or after the route was graded. I may not ever make it back out there but am curious how it goes.
