Head up the corner towards a nice left leaning crack. Chug up this and then move right and carry on up a right facing corner to a ledge. Move left across the ledge to finish up the green wall of Tawny Porto.


Right had side of pillar.
Look for the obvious white leaning crack/corner.
See La Rioja for descent


Standard rack.

Really cool climb and a great zone. I highly recommend checking it out. I was psyched to have doubles in .75 and #1 (BD). Other than that a standard rack up to a #3. A 70 meter rope is what you need to get down but watch the ends when rappelling. The webbing above (rap anchor) may need to be replaced for next season (2015). I look forward to climbing all of the routes Jun 16, 2014

Was up here on 9/23/2018: Accidentally climbed the corner just right of this climb. There is no crack in the corner - rather, there is a widening finger-to-hand crack on the face right of the corner. I did not take a photo from the ground, unfortunately, but I posted a photo looking down on the climb (above). There was also considerable loose rock in the corner - enough that I won't climb this again without cleaning first, as it puts the belayer in considerable hazard. Sep 24, 2018
