Access Issue: Seasonal Raptor Nesting Details

Description

Named in honor of the restaurant in the town of El Rito.

p1: climbs a vertical crack (to the right of Juniper Direct) past a small pine at 40 m to a 2-bolt anchor at the right end of Juniper Ledge. Full 50 m pitch.

p2: choose an upper pitch from Juniper Direct (5.6), Chile Verde (5.6), or Bring Me a Bucket (5.9). (You can also do a 2-rope rap from the bolted anchors at the top of p1.)

Location

The start is at the bottom of a downed log, to the right of Juniper Direct and to the left of Chile Verde.

To descend, scramble up and go left (northerly) for awhile to reach the standard, well established and cairned descent trail. This is a great trail.
Alternatively and much less desirable, you can take the "East Gully" descent as described on page 7 of Gary Clark's El Rito trad area guide.

Protection

trad rack of stoppers and cams to 3", 6-8 double length runners.
