Description

Camouflage is a challenging crimp-fest between the Center Route and Rincon, well-bolted (originally with ring bolts that were hard to clip and now replaced with 16mm twisted leg SS glue-ins), continuous, and quite thin. Prepare thy tips for battle.

Start either on Rincon and move left to the first bolt, or you can stick clip the first bolt (or clip from Rincon and downclimb) and attack the little boulder problem leading directly to the first bolt. Now proceed to edge and crimp your way up the clean wall, past a definite crux at the bolt below the roof. At the roof move a bit right, into the corner. Above this you have to reach out left blindly to clip the bolts, and then do a couple of tenuous and difficult moves to big holds and a 2-bolt anchor up and right.

Crisp temperatures, good edging shoes, and fresh tips all help significantly, as does having the holds chalked up- they can be difficult to locate if not. This is a really exquisite bit of technical face climbing.
