Description

A 1 pitch climb past a mushroom-shaped roof about 25m up. Climb the crack leading through the center of the mushroom and continue up a crack/chimney to a large pine. The climbing is good through the roof with crappy brush and 4th class afterward. Lots of spots/choices to build a gear anchor.

Location

The start is about 30 m right of Packrat Dihedral. Look for the mushroom shaped roof about 25 m up the wall.

For the descent, climb 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 with stoppers and cams to 3"; 6-8 double length runners.
