DescriptionExcellent, and long route. Start is moderate, easing up through the middle, with the crux at the top where the route starts to get steeper.
Because of the length of this route, a 60m rope is necessary, or the belayer must be atop the boulders at the base (can anchor to the ponderosa).
NOTE: This climb was incorrectly called Long John in the online El Rito guide, as Gary C. didn't know the FA info (see comment from FA below).
