The taxing roof start of Comando Cono.

Description 

Another great tufa line, that is quite sustained without any great rests. It climbs a lot longer than it looks, with a contrived "Slab" finish that detracts from the overall quality of the route.

Begin up on a sloping, dirty shelf below an amazing array of tufa fins. Pinch your way up the steep swell to gain the wall. Trend up & right making a hard move off a slopey pocket, avoiding the big scoop out left. Continue shuffling right-wards from tufa to tufa until its possible to traverse back left along the flat tops of several tufa columns. Mantle onto the slab & a well earned shake. The route should end here, but instead make an awkward traverse onto the orange streak via a mono & slopey dishes. Tenuous moves lead up the pretty slab to the anchor.

Location 

Near the far left end of Gran Boveda, beginning with a nearly-horizontal roof ~8 feet up. This is the left-most of a couple lines that finish on a high, hanging slab. This line finishes up an orange streak in the hanging slab.

Protection 

Bolts to 2BA.
