El Muerte Rojo 

Climb to and continue up the crack to its end and beyond, to the sloping ledge. Climb up the left-facing corner to the right (same as Full Moon Fever) OR straight up from below the left end of the low overhang (5.8).
Once that crack gets scrubbed, it's a good route.


Near the center of the cliff, just right of a clump of small beech trees growing beside the cliff. Directly below a crack that begins about 12' above the ground and ends about 20' higher.
To descend, walk around or rappel.


Tricams and cams, one medium-small nut, and a quickdraw for one bolt. A couple full-length runners.

I'd give it more than a star (maybe 2.5 stars). It's an interesting route with a mix of holds. Probably 5.6-5.7
