Description

Start at obvious but agave filled corner system just to the right of the slab.

P1:Head past first agave making some crux moves to its right. Arrange a belay just below and to the left of the large boulder in front of you. Apparrently the crack to the left of the first pitch makes a good 5.8 variation.

P2: Move past another dastardly agave. The route continues up the obvious squeeze chimney to your right. Follow crack to the top negotiating your way around a very large prickly pear. Another 5.7 variation, that offers a cleaner and possibly more enjoyable finish, is found via a crack going out right, before reaching the large succulant.
Belay at the top and walk off to the East.

Protection

doubles to #3bd & a #4 camalot, stoppers.

There's a big cactus blocking the obvious way up this -- bring gloves and a machete and you're welcome to use my clippers for all the brush up higher. We decided to leave Grody alone. Oct 10, 2017

I witnessed a load of microwave-sized blocks come tumbling down this route the other day (I was on the front porch and no-one was on the route thankfully) . Use caution if you're gonna venture up this one. Jan 15, 2018
