El Nino


The climb is short, and the holds appear big. Don't be fooled.

The first half of the climb is steep, but the holds really are good. The second half provides the crux with a tricky sequence getting up to and passed the last bolt.


Located at the left hand end of the Warming Wall, on an overhanging prow.


4 bolts, open shuts anchor

Short and deceptively steep down low to a tricky and somewhat technical crux before the last bolt. Pumpier than one might imagine for such a short route.

Don't lose your lunch at the top, stay committed for one last move. Otherwise you will take the king swing. My friend did and missed the ground by about 2 feet. Swung in hot.
