Description

Climb the "Big Flake" route to the anchors, here instead of clipping the anchors, clip the bolt a few feet right, and pull a insecure move to a good hold and the next bolt. Pull the crux moves involving a small crimp and undercling and punch up to a clipping jug. Rest up here and head up to the anchors with several bolts of 12- climbing to one more technical crux just before the anchors.

Named after the Jornado Del Muerto portion of the El Camino Real trail that passes behind the Caballo Mountains. Loosely translates to "Single Day's Journey of the Dead Man", for the many people who died traversing the barren region.

Location

Shares start with the "Big Flake" route. Can start from either inside the cave and traverse into the start, or start on the lower ledge and climb easy low angle rock into the start.

Protection

9 Bolts for the upper section, and an additional 9 for the lower section, if starting from the higher ledge in the cave. A 60m might work but use caution. Will need at least a 70m if starting from the lower ledge, again use caution and tie a knot in the end of the rope.

Grade is still up for debate, might be as low as 12c, could be as hard as low 13a, depends on how hard the crux moves are. Needs some additional ascents for confirmation. The moves are pretty awesome, however the rock is sub-par, hopefully the holds will hang in there. Feb 14, 2016
