Warning Access Issue: Beware of loose rock! DetailsDrop down

Description Suggest change

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 so bring your stuff with you.

Location Suggest change

Park at the red Gaucho Gil shrine and walk across the road to the small creek/arroyo. On the right side of the arroyo is a trail through the trees. 30 minutes of steep hiking takes you to the base. 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 Suggest change

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.
