Description

A good, well-protected climb on the right end of The Balcony. Climbs big, positive cobbles to the top. The name plays off the Austin Powers theme of the wall.

Location

Right end of the Balcony proper. It starts right where the old, big tree has fallen over. Gray colored hangers.

Protection

7 bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

Good movement, would be a great first 5.9 lead - very well (too?) protected with clean falls. Dont Z-Clip! Jun 12, 2017

My first route at El Rito. This is a very cute route. Good warm-up and intro to El Rito. Apr 17, 2015

This is a good climb. The holds are steady and visible the whole way up. I believe the crux is right after the second clip which i feel makes this a 5.9 rating Apr 30, 2007
