Description

The 2nd climb from the left end is relatively tricky and is one of the hardest lines on the main part of the Balcony. It angles up and right, with the crux moving past a bulge at about the 3rd bolt. The top half is substantially easier, as the cliff angles back.

As with many of the newest routes at El Rito, it's generously bolted with high quality hardware, and fun; though this one is new enough that we knocked off a couple of small chunks, but it will clean up nicely with more traffic.

Keep an eye out on those pockets for inhabitants, multiple pockets on this route had hornet nests in them. Totally jacked the sequence for me, not to mention wondering if I'm gonna have to stab myself with an Epi-Pen. Sep 10, 2015
