With a crux near the top, this is currently the easiest rock route in Ciales in a cave next to the hardest routes in the valley.  With large wacos, sometimes filled with leaves, this is the only route here bolted in stainless steel expansion bolts.  The anchor is just below a large ledge which also accesses the top of an adjacent, yet unclimbed wall in a corredor next to Tocineta Picante. 

Location

Starting 10 feet right of Via del Coqui in a corredor with a very large chalkstone spanning it's width.

Protection

Eight stainless steel expansion bolts to a two bolt lower-off anchor.
