Description 

This shares the anchor with Coatimundi to the right. The Frank Madden book has it at 5.10a, which feels about right, but the potential for a nasty swing and a facefull of cacti makes it extra spicy, and gives motivation to do it clean..

Location 

A few feet left of Coatimundi.

The start of the approach as for Sky Top Buttress. A short trail branches off left, above the scree field, just a little ways down from the base of Sky Top.

Note that this is a separate approach from the beginning of El Mirador, along with any other routes to the right of Libertad. If you're there you'll have to come down to the swimming pool complex, and come back up the stairs to the far right, which leads to a loose trail on the right side of the scree slope.

Protection 

Top rope only, use the Coatimundi anchor.

If you fall pretty much anywhere before the top you'll have a bit of a swing, with some very pointy plants ready to punish you for not doing it clean, but overall it's fairly safe.
