Up a bouldery start (crux) with tricky protection to a good ledge. The clean right-facing dihedral above is excellent and well-protected. The first obstacle is turning a 2' roof with jugs to a lieback, followed by sustained stemming in the corner. A brief and easier offwidth section concludes the climb.


Route #17 as shown in
South side of the Big Enchilada. Sorry for the poor quality, this is a photo of a photo. . Note, however, that this is listed as Route #16 in the Chen/Wehner online guide.

This climb is also listed as Beverly #19 (5.10c) and Jackson #15 (5.10a).


Standard rack to 2.5 inches.
2-bolt anchor, reachable from the top.

If you want to avoid the bouldery cruxy start to this climb but still enjoy the upper half at 5.9: Begin with the blocks/flakes as for climb 18, then move left on the ledge 20' up. Mar 22, 2009
