Climbers wanting to take on Austerity Measures must first climb Poroto Gringo or Wendeme.

The climb covers nearly 30m of delicate climbing on quality basalt to the top of the cliff. The burnt orange rock provides edges, buckets and the all too frustrating shallow, sloper pockets! There are two cruxes on the wall. The second crux near the top under a glassy roof. Climbers can aid over the crux if stuck. The first crux is after the second bolt above the big blocks. There seems to be enough holds but the slight overhang makes pulling it somewhat difficult.

This climb is exposed the entire time and rewarding in every aspect!

The climb's name comes from a group of Spanish aid workers who donated money to the Armora Gedel bolt fund

Though a difficult onsight, it has been redpointed by several and loved by all!


Austerity Measures starts at the anchors of Poroto Gringo/Wendeme and follows a prow up the head wall to the top of the cliff.


10 bolts. 2 bolt Anchors with quicklinks.
