This route is supposedly excellent (please rate it and add info if you have done it). Like 3 Stone Place, the pitches are long (up to 50m) so youll want 18-20 draws plus two ropes to descend.
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.
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.
