Start up a left facing corner until you can move right on to the face. Up the face passing 2 bolts then move left to finish on the arete.
Stellar pitch.


Starts up left facing corner 30ft uphill, right of Azal Tinto.


Standard rack. Purple/blue tcu's between bolts and a hand size piece for the top.
Bolt Anchor to the left of the arete finish.


What a fun and aesthetic line! If the heat and the crowds lower in the canyon have got you down, check this spot out! Aug 15, 2011

I agree, pretty sweet line! Moving from the corner to the face has some great exposure! Although, Shingo, we did have a pretty hot afternoon up there today. Granted it was over 100 in the valley, but we were cooking in the western afternoon sun!!

At any rate, great rock, great line, and a great setting make this a worthy outing!! Jun 29, 2013

Nice route, appreciated the bolts! First one is a bit mangled though... Aug 26, 2013
From the topo it looks like this would be a pretty sweet summit, does anyone know if that is the case? May 30, 2014
This route does not go to the top of the crag.
See pic below for info. The summit is a very nice place for lunch.

This route was stunning. Beautiful line, awesome movement, and the transition from the corner to the steep face was amazing. I think this route is a classic even by LCC standards. Thanks! Jul 25, 2014

Fun climbing and movement. Lots of opportunities to place small cams and nuts. I thought the blocks where one moves from the corner around onto the face seemed suspiciously hollow and mobile. My partner, who is bigger than I, tugged on the blocks on top rope and deemed them solid. Aug 4, 2014
