Access Issue: Do not use the dirt road to access the canyon. Details


Alex, Edgardo and I bolted this route as an alternative to Tears of Gold.
Pitch 1
Same as Tears of Gold. Climb awkward slab with bulges. 5.11d
Pitch 2
Skip the hard 5.13 pitch of Tears for Gold and move right up a dihedral, then back left to a belay on a ledge. Not super classic. 5.10
Pitch 3
Mega Classic. Much like Mothership Connection in the Potrero. Climb steep exposed wall up tufa with a crux connecting to another tufa.


Same as Tears of Gold. This is more or less a variation.
