A fun but short pitch through a bulging section of rock at the crux. Nice movement (some may call them awkward moves) all the way up with holds on boths sides of the obvious crack, some hidden inside and but no jams required in this off-width size fissure, but you can if you want! A few loose rocks near the top as you enter the alcove are loose so climber and belayer beware. The anchor is the same as for the next route to the right, Root Canal, and this pitch can be top-roped after leading Guabá Man.
On the left wall near the back of the cave, the obvious one-foot-wide crack splitting the wall.
Seven stainless steel bolts protect the crux to a steel anchor bolts with chains. Sometimes there are lower off carabiners on the anchor that can be used, otherwise threading through the bottom chain when finished climbing and rappelling or lowering off is the easiest way to clean your gear from this anchor.
