Description

For historical completeness, this was the first route done without bolts or top rope on the overhang. It goes directly through the stacked blocks in the center of the overhang. The crux is being able to stand on the blocks then moving up to the left side of the small cave above. A knee bar in the cave gives a great rest before the final moves. On the topo it is between routes 5 and 6.

Protection

You may be able to get gear behind the blocks but I didn't.

Ah yes, what you do when you are young. I actually didn't tell anyone about the ascent when it happened. But there was a guy I had never met that witnessed it. He and I were the only ones there that day. He told someone at Backwoods and they put it together that it was me and asked me about it. The witness had a big Aztec tattoo on his arm that was the inspiration for the name. Jan 17, 2018
