DescriptionThe fun direct line just right of the rappel descent from Amptrax, bolted by Bernabe Fernandez. The climbing is varied with short, well-defined cruxes that come at the beginning of pitches 3 and 4, and nice belay locations. A 70m rope is necessary to rappel the route.
p1: 5.7 (4+), start by climbing the left side of a small buttress to a bolts and chain anchor visible from the ground next to a bush.
p2: 5.9 (5+), take the right and more direct of two available bolt lines. You should be going straight up, not up and left. A more technical pitch on better rock. Anchor in a nice alcove 10-15 feet left of a big bush.
p3: 5.10 (6a+), move left and up to get out of the alcove and over the bulge for the crux of the pitch, then continue straight up to another alcove with great technical climbing. The holds are all there if not immediately visible.
p4: 5.10d (6b+), again move left and up out of the alcove, then right and over the bulge to a pinch and lieback rib for a fun and powerful crux sequence. Continue straight up the vertical grey wall as the holds get larger, although there is at some point another wingspan horizontal move.
p5: 5.8 (5), continue straight up as the rock becomes less steep to meet up with Amptrax on the top.
