Description

Climb the obvious flake (crux) up 15 feet to a crack while clipping the bolts to your right. After the crack, the route moves left to a chain anchor. The upper bolts and anchor are shared with the route Eliminate to your left.

Several places list this route as 6a under the French system which should correspond to 5.10b, but 5.9 is about right.

Location

This is the next climb to the left of Las cagao.

Protection

Closely spaced bolts to flimsy chain anchor. I recommend not clipping anything until the first bolt on the flake. There is a slightly lower bolt to your left which is part of Eliminate, but this is best avoided.

The route is certainly harder if you climb the face of the flake, instead of the layback (as in the photo of Chris). Jul 10, 2009
