DescriptionWhen combined with Estrellita these two 1-pitch routes are great for a leader breaking into the 5.8 range. If necessary an anchor can be set by carefully scrambling up the back of the formation.
The route starts 5 feet left of the more popular Estrellita. Follow a left tending crack , past a bush to a small roof. Once over the roof follow a system of cracks to the top of the formation, where a belay can be set. This belay is shared with Estrellita.
