Description

Very sustained and quality climbing with multiple cruxes make Tierra Del Fuego one of the best 5.11s on The Little Eiger.

The route lies between Natural Selection and Bush Administration. Climb low-angle slab past two clips. The wall steepens at the third bolt. The next four clips are possibly the technical crux. Fire through and climb 5.10 above and then 5.9. The wall steepens again, climb past three bolts on sustained 5.11 to the anchor. Pump left past the last bolt and then crimp up and right to a final crimp under the anchor

The route might be a letter grade harder. I need a few climbers to get on it and confirm the rating. I rehearsed it while establishing so when I sent it I knew every move.

With the placement of the anchors on Tierra Del Fuego, it is now possible to get off Natural Selection and/or Bush Administration without complication for those with a 50-meter rope.

Gregg Purnell has added an extension that adds a bolt and ends at another anchor. This is 12 a/b.

Protection

11 bolts to the two-bolt anchor.
