Description [Suggest Change]
Start below the beautiful overhanging hand crack in a left-leaning finger crack. Traverse up and right through easy climbing until you are at the triangle pod. Put gear in here because the next moves are tough. Getting established in the hand crack is the crux. Powerful and fun moves through the overhanging hand crack up to the second pod. The route is basically over once you're through the overhanging section. Follow the hand crack up to a ledge. Follow the dihedral which is cruiser 5.8 climbing. Finish with a gear anchor at the top of the dihedral or head right to the two bolt anchor for Cuerno Verde.
Location [Suggest Change]
The obvious and beautiful overhanging hand crack to the left of Cuerno Verde. Right of the left facing corner and the unknown sport route.
Protection [Suggest Change]
The lower pod takes either a .75 or .5 depending on where you place it. The hand crack loves yellow #2s. The dihedral takes small gear to #1. The anchor could use some wide gear if you're crazy enough to haul it up, otherwise you can fit a #2, #3, #1 or a .75 deep in the top of the crack.
