Suzi leads Aqua Negro.

Description 

Route Name: Agua Negro. Bolted perfectly for a 5.8 climber. Steep but plenty of holds and solution pockets. Several variations possible. This is probably the best quality climb at Texas Canyon. There is a belay station mid climb. After that the climb is 5.0.

Location 

Center of east wall of The Canyon. Obvious water grove. Short oak tree at the base. Go straight up left of the oak tree.

Protection 

Quickdraws, bolted

Is this route also reffered to as Rt C-1?
By Spider Savage

Rt-C1 was an old designation that I made until I got with Loomis and he gave me the first ascent name. This site does not work with routes that do not have names. There are many of these at Texas Canyon and so they are not yet on this site.

Was out at Texas Canyon over the weekend... Seemed a few bolts for Agua Negro were missing?

Last Tues, I led this, using Ben Chapman's second suggestion (above). I suggest replacing all 3/8-inch bolts with 1/2 X 5-inch bolts, unless placing in a dense, fine-grained, solidly embedded cobble of sufficient size.

As of Saturday, June 6th the 1st bolt and the anchor on "Cascada" (aka Aqua Negro) have been replaced. The climb is fully equipped.
