Description

This is the most blatantly chipped route I've ever climbed in Penitente (I was goint to say "ever", then I remembered that I've climbed in Rifle before.) Most chipped routes, especially around here, have "enhanced" or "comfortized" holds. This route has pockets drilled straight into blank stone. It's really a bummer too because this is one of the very few overhanging pieces of rock in the SLV. It might have been a good hard route, but now it's just a pile.

Protection

Bolts, stick clip for first bolt.

Location

Just past the Virgin painting, where the canyon makes a bend to the right. Climbs the left side of a large egg-shaped boulder sitting on a pedestal.
