Description

P1. Climb an easy (5.2), run out face past a couple of small trees to a large belay ledge. The protection on this pitch is a little sparse. I slung one of the small trees and placed a questionable cam.

P2. Fun pitch. Climb the face above the belay ledge and work right to the obvious right-facing dihedral. Step around the corner and into the dihedral. Follow the fun dihedral almost to the top where easy scrambling leads to another good belay to the right of a pine.

To descend, scramble up and go left (northerly) for awhile to reach the standard, well established and cairned descent trail. This is a great trail.
Alternatively and much less desirable, you can take the "East Gully" descent as described on page 7 of Gary Clark's El Rito trad area guide.

Location

Next climb to the right of Commie Pinkos. Start just downhill from the second pine tree.

Protection

Standard trad rack. Bring a couple loose slings to sling the trees on P1.
