Description

A nice option for those looking to climb a short route on the day they hike up to Anfiteatro.

Pitch 1: Start up and easy slab to a slick right facing corner. This pitch is mostly bolted with a few pieces of gear near the top. 5.10

Pitch 2: The best pitch of the route in my opinion. Continue up the corner via stemming and jamming to a bolt. Climb a little bit past the bolt to a final cam placement (save a .5) and head left out of the corner to a bolted slab/face. 5.10

Pitch 3: Climb up an easy lower angle groove/corner to an anchor. Continue past the anchor up the obvious bolted face to the next anchor. 5.10

Pitch 4: Follow more bolts up and slightly right around a flared right facing corner. 5.10

Location

If your hiking up the trail to Anfiteatro look for a flat sandy spot in front of a long granite boulder. If you get to the river crossing you just passed it about 5 minutes back. From the bivy area in Anfiteatro its about a 20 minute hike down the main trail.

Protection

Single rack of cams to #3 Camalot. Extra micro to finger size down to a black Alien. 10 to 12 draws for all the bolts. All the anchors are bolted. Rap the route with one 70m or two 60m's.
