Description

While not the hardest line at the cave, this is one of the steepest. While most of the climbing is on huge holds a section of rounded pods with no good holds will probably slow down most climbers.

Start in the back of the cave climbing easy features up to the first bolt. After getting the first two bolts clipped, commit to the steepness and figure out how to kneebar / toehook / heelhook / bicycle your way thru the rounded pods to good holds and the fourth bolt. From here it is probably only low to mid-12 to the anchors shared with "La Violencia" with several great rests awaiting.

It appears there is a variation to finish this up on Huiratica for more difficult climbing.
