Striking and wide this is the kind of route you will either love or hate. Named for a massive burrito served at Sonora Cantina restaurant in Big Bear Lake.


Left side of the north face.

This is a very clean and striking crack. The lower portion seemed way hard if you don't stem. #5 C4 camelot is pretty tipped out in the narrowest part of the crack - next time I would just bring two #6 camelots. Bolts on top for belaying/TR and easy walk off. Aug 5, 2013
Big Juan is super fun, there are just enough features outside the crack to minimize the offwidthing if you are smart (which I wasn't). Can walk bomber #6 Friend from bottom to top, no need for any other gear if you are willing to walk the #6. Aug 22, 2015
