Ah, "El Guapo" what a little bastard of a problem. It kills your fingers and you've got to really crank on some tiny finger tip slopers to top it out. Really over grown by moss and needles, Guapo constantly needs to be brushed out. Sit start on the big crystals, work right to another big crystal, up to a small crip, match, grip the bulget, then pull-scratch-yank-and yell top the top. The crux is pulling through the left side of the bulge. "if you can't be good, be strong"


See description for "Ned Nederlander". Guapo is located on the NE corner of the same boulder.

I recently took a friend to check out this problem after he had just gotten his first send of "vice grips" (V7?). He gave "El Guapo" a couple of burns & failed attempts he said "V2? I'm going to call sandbag on this one."

It's V3 and I believe you (Gary) received the first ascent on this one.
