Start atop a large block and make a few easy moves to clip a bolt, pull the roof (crux) and gain the crack. From here head up the flaring crack can clip a bolt to the left with a long sling. Before exiting the crack head right to a bolt you can't see from the ground. Continue angling right for the dike past another bolt. Head for the top passing occasional opportunities for pro.


Between Walking Dread and Dirty Black Nightmare, shares start with Black Streak. Look for the low first bolt and roof leading to a 20 ft crack.


4 Bolts, Nuts & cams up to hand size, runners to avoid rope drag. Build a anchor at the top or belay from the rap bolts atop Bienvenidos. Descent can rap Beinvenidos with a single 60m or walkoff to east.
