Placement of bolts/fixed anchors is prohibited in Wilderness Study Areas Details


A short and un-inspiring lichen covered slab. Several variations can be climbed from the anchors ranging from 5.4-5.6. Some of them are slightly cleaner than others. for taking a beginner out climbing this route may have some value, but even then it's not going to get a beginner excited about climbing.


On the western end of La Cueva is a small cove. This climb is on the large slab on the right side of the cove. The anchors are located beneath the mushroom-cap top.


3 relatively good condition (no visible rust) 3/8" bolts make for a good anchor. One of the bolts has a home-made hanger. It may be possible for one to lead the climbing using a few deep-pockets for tri-cam placements. But it would not be a recommended climb for a beginning leader, and would probably feel "R" rated. Reach the anchors by scrambling up from the south (4th class).

Something of note for those exploring this section of La Cueva; If you continue scrambling along to the top of this section of the cliff you will find another set of 3 shiny bolts. Sources tell me that these bolts are used to set up a tyrolean traverse which crosses over the cove below, and that the organ Mountain rescue Unit uses this for training purposes. Apr 24, 2006
