Description

This is a very fun and long route! Both pitches are rated 5.10a. The first pitch's crux is 3/4 of the way up at the blank section with a few crimps/pockets to make your way up. The second pitch has bigger holds and has a bulge just below the top anchor and to the right of the roof, which is the crux.

Location

This route is just to the left of Juan De Fuca and is the the furthest left route on the El Nino Wall (large black/slabby wall). This route finishes just to the right of the obvious roof on the top left section of the El Nino wall.

Protection

This route is 20 bolts to the top anchors if you link the first and second pitch together. There are 9 bolts to the lower anchors and then 10 bolts to the second 10 bolts to the top anchors. Just like Juan De Fuca - This route can be climbed in one go with a 60 meter rope. If climbed with a 60 meter rope you will have to rappel down using both anchors. If you have a 70 or 80 meter rope you can climb the entire route in one go and then be lowered to the lower chains and rappel off from there.
