Description [Suggest Change]
There are currently three routes to the right of the large stalactite and this is the center of these and it starts a slightly higher ledge above the main ledge where the adjacent routes have anchors. The first pitch starts up an easy slab then at a big ledge, follows steep pockets past four bolts to a tricky mantle. Continue straight up somewhat loose rock past four more bolts and two large ledges to reach the higher ledge with an anchor.
Location [Suggest Change]
The three routes on this side of the face start in the same zone and there are two bolts about 2 meters apart (parallel) and 3 meters up the face, La Avispa clips the right bolt then continues up a steep inset on pockets past four bolts to a mantle on a large ledge. Straight up easier but somewhat loose rock past five more bolts to the anchor on a small ledge above "lunch ledge" where the other two routes start.
Protection [Suggest Change]
13 ss bolts on the second crux pitch and 6 bolts on the first 10+ pitch.
