Description

This route has a good section of climbing with good rock and good gear.

Start as for Bandito, and as soon as established off of the ground, head sharply left into a curving and wandering hand-crack. Curve and wander with it to an overhang/bulge 10-15 meters up, jam over that (crux) to a good stance, then wander up and right over easy terrain to the anchors as for Bandito. Step right just before passing a large shrub to arrive at the anchors.

Location

This route starts as for Bandito but climbs up the wandering hand-crack to its left through the steep wall past the bulge.

Protection

From small to large hands and a few 2' runners. Rap from chain-anchors on Bandito.

I started right (bandito), moved into the hand-crack on the left which was super fun, and then last minute cut right to skip the overhung fingery-roof. That felt like the most natural way to climb this.

I'll call it 5.9. G rated at the parts that matter, but pumpy. I got scared and plugged too many cams which pumped me out lol.

Good stuff! Looking to redpoint this next time. May 21, 2018
