DescriptionThis is a really great route, with awesome exposure and a really cool summit. It climbs obvious dihedrals and good face climbing up to the ridge.
P1: 5.10a - 11 bolts
P2: 5.10a - 9 bolts
P3: 5.10c - 9 bolts - crux. Some cool handjams and good exposure.
P4: 5.9 - 8 bolts - Jugs to the summit.
You can link pitches and do the route route in two pitches.
LocationAfter hiking up steep terrain past the Wonder wall this is the first route you come to on El Mirador and is marked with a nameplate.
Getting down is maybe the crux. There are a couple options.
Rap the route you climbed, which posed the problem of getting rope stuck on the first rap, which isn't kind of indirect at the top. Or go down a fixed line 15 feet to another anchor where you can rap down to a ledge in the virgin canyon and then walk over to a 4th class down climb in the gully. Then walk down the steps in the virgin.
