A long (50m) 1st pitch, is followed by several 25-30m pitches. Bring 18 or so draws plus two ropes to descend. (Two ropes only necessary for the first pitch)
Descent: There's 4 raps. From the top rap even to the top of the 4th pitch but to the anchor 8m left of it. The next rap is 50m and goes straight down to gold rap rings above a yucca plant. Then 30m down and right, followed by the last rap of 50m to the ground.
Alternatively rappel the route via the same anchors used on the climb, be sure to place directionals on the 2 traverse pitches.
Location: Hike up the mining road for a couple of minutes and turn left on the trail for El Bobo. Follow the red painted arrows/dots up past El Bobo (the dunce-hat-shaped formation) and continue up the third class ridge. When you get to the red arrows pointing in different directions head right for the Zapatista route. There may be a fixed line over the scree to the base of the route.
