Description

This route is a short but fun variation to the first pitch of Rincon that finishes on the Camouflage anchors. Climb Rincon (sandbag 10a) to a stance below an obvious flake underneath the large roof just right of Camouflage. Plug in some good gear and hand traverse wildly left (red Alien) before standing up and clipping the anchors.

Link it all into P2 of Center Route for a great 185' pitch with a few 5.10 cruxes. Mar 13, 2010

Concentric @ Rincon @ Eldo

Using the bolt anchor for Camouflage is a great way to set up a top rope for Rincon's finger crack. Although, continuing to the top via Center Route or On the Crest is why I think this is a four star route. Concentric climbs Rincon's central wall without having to do 5.11.

PG-13 because the red Alien will not save the leader from hitting the Camouflage slab if the anchor is not successfully clipped. Oct 28, 2014

Fun, little traverse. The crux pro placement is not the most awe inspiring, the rock there is coarse grained, and the placement is flared and angled. Jun 30, 2015
