Description

Somewhat dirty climb that doesn't appear to get much traffic, but fortunately routefinding won't be a problem as it follows a large corner to an obvious right exit under a large roof. Fun climbing movements throughout, but somewhat chossy with holds that feel like they might break off at some point. Crux is a small overhanging corner that goes from blocky to flaring crack about halfway up the climb. Protect below it, as the holds above are somewhat insecure and the cracks won't take great gear for a while.

Location

The huge corner/blocky chimney in the middle of El Abuelo's south face. Starts at a flaring and mossy notch just across from the Del Diedro starting blcok - it's the most obvious line on the face.

Protection

Standard rack. A #4 C4 is useful for the wide section near the bottom.
