Description

This is another great Piedra face climb on steep, solid edges. It has pretty technical movement on dead vertical rock. That said you seem to be able to get a rest after each section, so it never gets that pumpy. This is a great warm-up for the other routes around it but also a must do route in general.

Location

This is just right of the "Hops". Start on a black face and climb into the orange/blonde rock up high.

Protection

6 bolts to lowering anchors.
