Climb a right arching hand crack to a large stuck block, jam the left side of the block to exit the arete then up easy face climbing. Hopefully the block will not fall off while you are climbing it.


This crack route is in the east alcove of the first buttress east of Treasure of the Sierra Madre. To descend climb over to the next buttress east (exposed easy 5th class) and then walk down east near Pleasure Principal.


Cams 1-3" assorted small aliens for easy face above. No fixed anchor - tie off the loose summit blocks.

Some fun steep hand-jamming to be had here. I cleaned a bunch of loose rock out of the lower crack, should be more enjoyable for future parties. The huge block seems solid, right? I yarded on it anyway..

To descend - step across the void to climber's right (wise to stay roped up for this), onto the next summit, then descend one of several gully/chimney systems between the towers. Feb 4, 2013
