Description

This route comes to us from a different era...an era in which bolts were only placed, when no other gear options existed...and so, it is scarry!

This is a really great route, with good climbing, but unfortunately, the lack of fixed pro has [relegated] it to obscurity. The route climbs the crack feature left of the virgin painting. Start by stemming a couple desperate moves to reach a crack where the #1 cam can be placed. A few more placements will get you to a ledge...the #.5 is nice to protect the move getting to the 2nd bolt. The crux involves moving between crack systems between the 2nd and 3rd bolt. There are no anchors, but you can lower or (better yet) rap off the "Los Hermanos..." anchors.

A good route that could be very popular if it were "modernized".
