DescriptionThe first pitch of this deserves 4 stars, the second and third 2, hence the overall 3 star rating. Double ropes needed to rap. Otherwise top out as for Tres Hombres and walk of exposed 3rd class to climbers left.
Pitch 1) A short traverse with thin pro leads to a left facing corner to the right of the arete. The crack widens and narrows, leading to a ledge with anchors on the far left (shared with 4 other routes). This pitch is 180+'.
Pitch 2) It's best to have scoped this from the ground; move up and right through a series of ledges to the base of a steep dihedral. Short pitch.
Pitch 3) Finish as for Tres Hombres, up a short steep section, then topping out and walking off to the climbers left.
LocationLook for a small ledge which leads right to a small left facing corner. As with many of the climbs here, standing back helps.
