Description

Begin with a fun, little romp up a tricky, slabby start, then make heady moves on easy terrain to the anchors. This one is bolted perfectly safely, just don't fall on the easy parts. If you can pull off the first sequence, you'll be fine up above.

After the bolted first pitch, there is apparently a 10b trad pitch that follows the vertical crack up to the roof, traverses left up through the roof, and terminates at the bolted anchors of Three Amigos. I haven't had chance to try this yet, though.

Location

It is just right of Three Amigos and just left of the Unknown 5.8- with red bed-frame hangers. This is up the hill and left from the easier mixed lines. The first bolt should be easy to spot just above a bulgy thing.

Protection

6-ish bolts + anchors.

Another good route. The start felt to be the crux, and I protected the thin move to the first bolt with a #0.5-BD. I also used a yellow-C3 midway and a #2 BD just below the anchor, but a better headed leader wouldn't need to. May 26, 2018
