Description

p182 new Rossiter Eldo guide

Upper Rincon, just to the left of P3 of POINT BREAK.

Barrel roll over the initial bulge and gyrate up into a shallow corner. It's possible to fiddle in a tiny RP here, and even if it only holds body weight, I'd recommend it. Head up and left over the bulge (5.7 & very serious if the moves were harder) to find good protection then weave up and left across the face. Good protection is found frequently. Stay below the froth above and above THE REEF below and continue left until you reach a clean thin crack. Follow this (crux) up and then left to another crack which leads to the belay in the recess shared with FrontSide LipSmack. Follow P2 of that route to the top.

Both this route and FrontSide LipSmack to it's left are seen clearly from the Eldorado Canyon Trail. Once past THE REEF each route is swell.

Protection

Many thin & medium pieces for P1 and add a big cam or two for P2.
