P1. Start up a large, right-facing flake, and climb to below a roof. Move up and right past the roof to gain another crack. Follow this to a chimney which leads to a ledge on the left and a bolted anchor.

P2. Climb up broken rock to the top of a boulder/flake, step across to the crack and take it to another bolted anchor at the top.

Descent: two rappels will get you back on the ground. Watch the rope pull after the first rappel, there is some loose stuff that could come down.


This route starts just left of the obvious corner of Punta Magna.


Standard East Animas rack - #3 Camalot.

The beginning was edgy, and spicy without any good gear. I was a little gripped. But I could have been off route. Aug 6, 2007

Jay the start follows a large flake. You probably did the opening moves to Punta Magna and then went left to Apple Cider. The actual route is not PG-13.

This climb has the classic east a awkward section in the form of a flared chimney to a mantel. Nov 7, 2007
This route is so much fun. Lots of variation. You can pull through the roof in the beginning or go around to the flakes. In the middle there is a hand crack or to the left there is a great finger crack. You can always clip the chain to the right below the chimney, but then you miss the real fun! Jan 30, 2011

Seth, the anchor is on the ledge to the left at the top of the chimney. The moves are funky and tenuous for the grade. I think I do it different every time. If I am remembering correctly, you can get high in the chimney with good feet on the right hand side and then mantel out onto the ledge. Mar 9, 2011

Moving through the chimney and mantel is crazy fun and a super interesting puzzle to solve. May 27, 2012

Found two pieces of rock gear on this route today, 11/13/12. PM me with what they were and the markings, and I'll get them back to you.

Edit: 12/13/2012 - After one month without claim, gear has been passed on to someone who needs it/will use it. Thanks for your generous contribution. Nov 13, 2012

Hey Durango, I lost a #2 Camalot with a yellow CAMP Nano 22 somewhere at East A. last weekend. I may have left it at the base of Apple Cider in the dark or it may have fallen out of my backpack when it came unzipped on the way down the trail. It wasn't at the base of Apple Cider today, so I think it may have fallen out of my pack. It can identified by blue nail polish on the bottom of the axle in between the lobes.

If you happen to find it and are feeling generous, I'll offer a good reward and you may find a new partner who's always stoked to go climbing. Thanks, and have a great Thanksgiving Breaking Durango. Nov 20, 2015
