The literal meaning of "Desperado". Climb the direct line right of the black streak to a bowl. Take some gear up to a .75 camalot. The edges, mostly invisible from the ground, are incredible. One person, who ought to know, says this is the best 5.11 face in the state. Tim may have added more pitches later on.


A grassy meadow in center of wall. Look for black streak and bowl up high.


Bolts, some natural gear.

This route has several variation top out's. It has bolts that go to the right on pitch 2 that are said to be the harder way, and other variations to the left that are easier, and go on all gear. There is a single bolt anchor at the top just under the tree ledge. Aug 20, 2008
You guys have any more pics of this one? Looks great. Is it sustained 11? The start doesn't look as bad as half way up. Mar 6, 2008
