Description Suggest change

Starts at a shallow left facing corner on the wall 30ft or so left of Bodegas Trapiche. Move left past a hollow horn/flake and a good red metolius just above it. Swing round left, place more pro and make a tricky step back right on to the face.
Carry on up the diagonal crack for 30ft or so until you can move left and finish near the arete.
Great climbing.

Location Suggest change

The route starts of the big ledge that has a big pine tree on it. There is a couple of ways to get to it.
I would recommend doing Vino Santo then rap from the top to the ledge. You could also do the first pitch of Criolla and walk across the ledge.

Protection Suggest change

Standard rack.
Slung horn at top, rap back to the ledge. Then from pine tree to the ground.
