Description Suggest change

A very thrilling pitch in a beautiful and exposed position. This route starts with Rosy Crucifixion and heads up and right from the first bolt on Rosy. There are about seven bolts in 150 feet of climbing (not as bad as it sounds). The first half of the route is the hardest with tricky balancy face moves that last for about 40 feet. The upper part has more rests, and a few tricky moves. Candelaria origionally rated this pitch .12a, but it definitely feels much easier. In the future it might live up to this rating as every other hold is on the verge of breaking. A beatiful and classic pitch.

Protection Suggest change

This "sport" route has "healthy" distances between bolts. Expect to pull 5.11 moves a little ways above your last bolt, and 5.9 moves way above your last bolt. There are three or four gear placements to supplement the bolts, bring a selection of stoppers and a #2.5 Friend.
