Description

An interesting and novel sport route up a wierd ramp on the face of a large boulder (The Miramontes Boulder). Steep reachy pull at the start (crux) gains access to the ramp.

Location

Located on a big west facing boulder (The Miramontes Boulder) just in front of the slab route "Shit, It's a Brit."

Protection

Four bolts, Quick draws only. Anchors on top.

I think the boulder was named for Augustino d'Amito Miramontes, inventor of the compass-free sextant, widely used by olde world seafarers. Aug 23, 2013

I was out there today and counted 5 bolts, as unreal as it seems. 5 bolts... not including the top anchor. Aug 22, 2013
