Description

P1 and P2 are easy approach pitches to the real climbing above, link them together into one long 180' pitch. P3 is the crux with some well protected face moves of 5.10a. P4 has a few delicate 5.9 moves. P5 and P6 are easier and can be linked together. P7 has some 5.9 moves to reach the summit ridge. Don't do a double rope rappel as they will snag on all the trees/bushes. Be careful for rock fall and loose rocks on the ledges. From the top you can also rappel down the route Sirtaki to the south. There is an easy walk off but it puts you on the other side of the formation and is difficult and time consuming to return to the base of Ruach de Jonah.

Location

Park before at the red Gaucho Gil shrine and walk south 200m on the road. Just before the stone retaining wall and first landslide look for footprints and cairns marking the climbers trail. Follow the trail 5 minutes through the trees until you get to where you can see the rock above. 30 minutes of steep hiking takes you to the base. Consult the photos for the location of the start. The single pitch routes nearby are easy to find and Ruach de Jonah is only 10m right of them. The first bolt is visible but is located about 15m up some easy 3rd class scrambling.

Protection

The route was bolted on lead ground up and is well protected where it needs to be and run out when it's easier. Bring 10 alpine draws. All anchors have rappel rings and are set for a single 60m rope rappel.

Amazingly fun climb, a good mix of adventure climbing and thoughtful moves. Well protected. When windy the rappels can be challenging, be cautious when throwing ropes. Jan 2, 2018

approach is pretty steep and the first bolts are hiding alil bit, trust your navigation skills and the descriptions in the app and youll find the base!
Becareful from loose rocks all the way up , the route is bolted just like it has to be, if the pitch is easy the bolts will run out abit.
the view is absolutely amazing! Sep 2, 2018
