Description

The first pitch is easy and well protected. It follows interesting features on great rock up a low angle slab. The second pitch is also, now, well protected. It is a grade harder and follows a line of bolts up to a nice ledge. At the ledge head left past 2 bolts and one peice of gear(I put in a pink Tri Cam but I think a .5 C4 woud work) to the p2 anchor of Costa Rica(you will want a long sling on that last peice). The 3rd pitch takes the obvious line up to another 2 bolt anchor but is overgrown and run out.

Location

30 or40' right of Costa Rica (p1) (see Reid guide)

Protection

7 or 8 bolts to a bolted anchor for the first 2 pitches plus a peice of gear. 3rd pitch needs gear.

Great climbing on perfect rock, a very good and well protected slab climb.

P2 starts with a little run after the 2nd bolt but on easy terrain. Mar 11, 2010

P1 is so good.
On P2 I had doubt where to go after bolt N4, since I can not see where route goes. Or if it fininished or unfinished project. I wish this bolt have a written note "Go up and right for 20 feet and you'll see the anchor." Apr 21, 2011

If you follow the bolts straight up past the big ledge you will need gear for the crack as well as a gear anchor. Also you will need to climb the next pitch(5.10a), which is mixed as well and run out, to get to a bolted rap station. From there you can do 2 double rope raps to climbers left. Apr 11, 2012
