Tyler Hunt leading El Tesoro in 2016


Great face climbing not very sustained, but a good route. Well placed bolts


East of Macho. Look for the first bolt. Rap off using 2 ropes or a 70M.


6 bolts, 2 bolt anchor

I gave this a PG13 because there is a 30ft runout from the last bolt to the anchors.

Very surprised this route isn't recommended more at Quartz. The crux comes right after the first bolt, making it incredibly well protected. A soft 10a by Quartz standards. If you want a climb to break into leading at Quartz, this would be my first choice.
