This is a fun linkup of "Warlock Pinchers" into "Pinche Guey". It has a cool sloper crux! Permission was given by Samet and Hache for this line.


Start on "Warlock Pincher" and climb to anchor on "Pinche Guey" clipping a traverse bolt between both routes.


10 bolts.

Good eye to Josh and Christie for this killer link up--it takes the hardest climbing on three cool routes and links them up through the steepest part of the wall on nice, dark rock. I thought it was a fair bit harder, at least in terms of pump factor, than Pinche Guey. I'd say a 12a crux, to 5.11- laybacks, to a cool, technical, body-English 11+ crux traverse, then into the Pinche roof of Pinche Guey. ¡Orale!

You can also do "Rock Warrior's Guey," 5.12c, by traversing in from low on the right, beginning on the flat starting jug below the 11a corner. Arc up and across the blue streak to join Warlock Pinchers by the second bolt; harder if you off-route the jug flanges on the right for your hands. This variation is also "guey" pumpy. Jun 30, 2012
