Description

After passing a bulge low down, follow 6 bolts angling leftward on a slab to an anchor below the high roof. The easiest line is not always obvious- consider stepping off the bolt line at times for a few moves. This climb has more pockets and smaller holds than others at Area 37, but isn't as steep. It also has the best rock quality of any at the area.

Because the climb angles left, tram in while lowering to clean or have a 2nd follow through the draws.

Location

2nd bolted line from the right end, just left of a large L-facing corner.

Protection

6 bolts to 2-bolt chain anchor

Harder than it looks, mainly due to tricky routefinding. You think you've gone the best way, then you spend several moves thinking the other way must be easier. Once I figured out the beta, the grade seemed about accurate. I broke a foothold down low and blew my OS attempt. My wife spent close to 30 minutes minutes onsighting with several downclimbs!

Sharp after a long day of climbing, but fun techy moves. I found it was a little harder than I expected, but enjoyed my first lead on this climb. Jun 27, 2012

I don't know what it is but this route seemed harder than I anticipated, though I expect its just one of those that is not conducive to my climbing ability/level. Less straight forward than other Area 37 routes in my opinion. Oh yeah, if you use the "tramway method" to get your draws on the way down, watch that last one. I took my brother for a ride when I unclipped the last bolt. Very exciting. Jun 18, 2009

I don't know why, but this is one of my favorite climbs at A37, or even Los Conchas area. Varied moves that are technical enough to keep you thinking, good rests, and a final crux! Sep 10, 2007
