Originally an A2 line climbed Aug 9th 1979 by Kelly Mallicoat and Clint Carriker called Montezuma's Revenge. Cortez, who conquered Montezuma, now goes free.

Climb out the impressive hanging corner utilizing sequential gymnastic beta and pull over the roof on excellent jugs.

The sole undercling on the roof has broken, the route likely still goes, but the 3rd clip may be more awkward.
