Tightly-bolted, a little loose. There is a bit of a bulge between the 5th and 6th bolts which can be exciting. Great for novice leaders.


Follow the same directions as for Dos Equis -- this is the first bolted route to its right.

Descend by rappel.


8 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

Great first lead. I gave it three stars not for the fun in climbing, but because this is a rare well protected/easy Pinnacles lead. I hate run out and would almost classify this route as over-bolted. The only move that isn't well protected is the very first move. After that it's very easy climbing, but watch for loose rock. There's a great looking flake near the top that I'm sure will be gone soon. Sep 6, 2014

Good steep challenging start to a very enjoyable and relaxing second half. More than 8 bolts although they are all very tightly spaced. Aug 6, 2014
