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.
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.
13 ss bolts on the second crux pitch and 6 bolts on the first 10+ pitch.
