This is route #14 in the online LAM guide. It was called, "Unnamed, left of the nose". Well, left of the nose is the Right Cheek, which is Spanish is Mejilla Derecha.

Start in the blocky crack system in a shallow right facing corner and work up to a stance where it changes to a left facing corner. Watch the abundant loose rock at this stance. A hand crack continues up the intersection between the face on the left and the arete/nose on the right. Follow the crack on up as it narrows to fingers, to the top of the pillar at the top of the arete, where there is a shaky block (with loose gravel) and poor protection. From the top of the pillar, head up the face to the left on easier ground, but with poor protection.
An OK lead, but loose and not terribly interesting.


Easily identified by the prominent flat-bottomed nose/arete, just to this route's [climber's] right.


Standard cams and nuts.

Set a gear anchor on top or use the two-bolt anchor.
