This is a decent warm-up climb on a slab just right of Apes in Estrus.

The climb is a ways past the Virgin painting and the Mercy Wall on the left. Directly across from the Brown Sugar area, find the huecoed arete (Apes in Estrus); just right is a slab above a nice belay ledge/boulder. This is the line up right border of the slab.


4 bolts + anchor.

I love Penitente as much as the next guy, but this thing is a total pile. Use extreme caution clipping the poorly placed (and spinning) bolts from chossy holds that could explode in your hand at any moment with that ledge beneath you! Apr 17, 2006

I have to agree w/Mike- a pile if there ever was one. Mar 21, 2012
