Description 

Spanish for 'ladder'. This fun route has something for everyone from underclings to handjams. Move up and right into the dihedral/chimney and use everything you can find.

The cruxy section comes at the 4th bolt. As a new leader, I felt it was harder than 5.8 through there. The anchors are on the face to the right around the corner from the last bolt, kind of hard to see where to go from that spot.

Location 

On the second tier of Vatoville, above most of the other climbs.

Protection 

8 bolts plus 2 chain anchors.
