Description

A quality alternative to the first pitch of Ixtlan. Start 20 feet right of Ixtlan, following 6 bolts through a tricky/insecure left-facing corner, two small roofs, and a thin final section up then traversing left to the Ixtlan pitch 1 anchor.

Location

Other side of the bush.

Protection

Bolts, optional smallish placement before the first bolt.

This route is rad! Interesting climbing! One of the key crimps near the top is about ready to break. It's cracked and flexes quite a bit as of 5/15. A little glue could totally save the hold, but it would probably go and just be a touch harder without it. May 26, 2015
Death block alert!!! The huge block after the 4th(?) bolt is going to fall on whoever touches it next! It rocks from the top about 4 inches. I drew 3 big X's on it. It's easily 100+ lbs and would definitely kill you and/or your belayer.

Also on my way up I pulled off a big block right around the 3rd bolt that was a pretty important hold. It came off when I barely touched it. Upon inspection, it appears to have been held on by some lichen or something. You can see it sitting at the base. Nov 25, 2015

Did it on top rope all the move goes but yes the big block with the 3 big X on is moving. I try to pull it off but it will need a crowbar. super dangerous if it fall ! dont belay someone in lead on that route until the bloc is gone.
Super nice route :) Nov 28, 2015
