Description

Located on western end of the Shady North side of La Cueva, this climb is a wide chimney with three bolts in the upper section. Fairly straightforward and excellent climbing on solid rock.

Protection

small trad for the first 10m, then 3 bolts in the wider section of the shimney. Bolt anchors.

Climbing on the face, right side of crack, is pretty fun. some loose rock but not bad. we nick-named this the butt-crack for obvious reasons...so if you need help finding it you know what to look for Mar 25, 2008

The first half below the bolts can be sewed up with good 0.5, 0.75, 1, and 2" cam placements. Jan 21, 2018
