Description

Dos Perras, Spanish for two bitches, is a short, stout climb for the tactician who enjoys less-than-vertical nothingness. Ascend minimally featured face to gain a small seam that leads to the anchors.

While rightfully overshadowed by the classic lines in its midst, Dos Perras offers a good challenge and a change of style.

Due to debris from road improvements the first bolt only partially protects the delicate starting sequence. Caution is recommended and steps such as an observant belayer, clipping directly into a carabiner rather than a quickdraw, and possibly even a stick clip could be considered.

Location

Dos Perras is located on the south face of Indigo Tower, directly across from New Wave Direct on the New Wave Wall.

Protection

5 bolts to chains.

This route is scary in the sense that you have to trust the rubber on your shoes. It is not dangerous so don't hesitate from getting on it. Jun 26, 2013

After TRing this for a "warmup" I have to say that I was very impressed by John's send. I also thought the movement on this climb was quite lovely...in addition to scary as s#*t. Jun 25, 2013
Good for you John for getting on this. I would bet that less than 20 of the thousands who have visited the New Wave Wall ever ventured near this thing. As far as the debris goes I would guess that less than five minutes would lower the start. That was all it took to clear the rocks from the start of Holey Moley about a month ago.
