Start on Makunaima, "sauntering up the first crux" as Steve Edwards described it in his guide book.  Continue up Makunaima just below the bulge, then cut left under the bulge to a bolt at the lip.  Climb straight up passed slopers to a big hueco and another bolt.  More huecos gain the top of a small pillar where Makunaima traverses in from the right.  An optional small cam can be placed here, then either follow Makunaima up and left around the arete on low-angled terrain, or for more pump, climb up and right to another big hueco staying on the steep face.  Traverse right to the crack, then straight up, finishing on Makunaima Direct.

Steve Edwards called this the "comfortable route" on the wall, up a "relaxing trip up juggy holds".  He also called it 11b, probably due to the lower crux of Makunaima.  There are indeed quite a few jugs, but it's definitely not trivial, at least the way I climb it.

This route was bolted on lead, for funzies.


Starts on Makunaima, then joins the bolt line to the left.


Same gear as Makunaima (I basically use a single rack to #4 BD) plus 2 bolts
