DescriptionThis is a great route with sustained and varied climbing. Kerry's guide has a good photo but little other beta.
Pitch one is a 4 star sustained 5.10 slab & face pitch for nearly 200 feet to a bolt anchor, optional mid-size cam at 3/4 height.
Pitch two steps left and up a bolted 5.9 slab right of a dirty crack. At slab's end, move left to the crack (although cleaner and steeper now, this crack isn't anything to get excited about). At the top, left past 2 bolts to the anchor.
Pitch three heads up left and then straight up following bolts up steep and pumpy 5.9+. Great climbing, great contrast to the slabbing below. Eventually the climbing eases off to an anchor just right of a large nopal. I think I placed one piece, a 0.75 camalot on this pitch.
You need two ropes two rappel. First rap is to the anchor atop pitch 2, second down and left to an anchor on another route. Or, do the walk-off described on the rock page.
