Los Putre 5.10a/b 6a+ 19 VI+ 19 E2 5b
When you get to the bright white block near the top of the climb, it looks like you need to move up on the left side, but it looks kind of hard. Instead, put your hands on top of the block, and traverse right on the wide ledge for your feet. Then move up. Much easier and less intimidating. You're welcome. :-)  Matt chose to lead up the middle of the face and skip the corner/traverse sequence that most people do on Andrew. The moves were thin, but pretty easy. Doing the right facing corner then traversing right has thin moves on the traverse and leads to more rope drag if you place gear on the left.  Small snails all over the base of the route Los Putre. <br />1/3/2017  Climber near the top of Los Putre.  There's some weird-ass spooky trash in that cave at the base of the cliff. <br />1/3/2017
