Neat route with fun moves and good rock. You can do a 5.8 crack start to the ledge if you don't want to climb the face.


Center of main wall.


Draws/chains. Optional cams for crack.


The thin finger crack that starts off the left side of the ledge is the upper half of the 5.8 crack you're talking about. It has good gear and is 5.10. Well worth leading. Dec 27, 2006

Great route - no cheating....stay away from the crack both low and high as there are face holds that go directly up the bolt line. Crux section between bolts 2 & 3.

3 bolts to ledge + 5 more to anchor. Feb 6, 2007

Thin brass nuts work good in the upper left crack...the gear gets a little patchy for a bit but its good enough. The crack ends at the same anchors for welcome to milagrosa. Feb 28, 2008

If anyone lost a pipe here, please message me and describe it. I'll arrange to get it back to you. Mar 1, 2009
Just did this route for the first time today and I have to say it's really really fun. I know it's not as hard as some of the others but it was just really fun. Great route worth doing if you there! Nov 15, 2013

Deceptively steep upper bit. Seemingly solid rock save for a few hollow crimps down low. Really great rock climbing. Jan 20, 2014

The OP says Argueso put this up in 89 ?! Im having a hard time believing that. I would have noticed it and he would have made me get on it. I wouldnt have let 30 years go by. Like I did. Nov 19, 2018

Shit description, I have only a vague guess as to where and what it is and I have been to this wall 100 times. Nov 21, 2018
