Description

The most obvious clean dihedral on the upper wall. Good as a reference point. Pitch 1 is fun fingers and hands (5.10). Belay on a big ledge about 70 feet up. P2 is an amazing stretch of stemming and thin climbing (5.11+).

Location

About a third of the way down the upper wall. The most obvious clean dihedral on this wall.

Protection

P1 takes finger to hand sizes. P2 #3s useful. P2: 2 or 3 each 0.4 to #2. One #3 useful for just below the single bolt. Possible to place good medium nuts.

Pitch 1 climbs better than it looks. Pitch 2 is amazing. Bring a set of C3s or similar, nuts work too. #3 cam not necessary, but can be used. The rock quality on this route is spectacular. Feb 19, 2015

Agreed Aaron. I always thought the first pitch was a good route by itself! The 2nd pitch is icing on the cake and one of the MUST DO pitches at Capulun!! Feb 20, 2015
