A decent, new route on the Mirador that ends on the Scariest Ride in the Park ridge.

P1: 5.9 - 7 bolts

P2: 5.11b - Goes up through a short section of some chossy rock and then to the right of the roof. - 11 bolts

P3: 5.11c - A very technical, sustained pitch on a beautiful steep slab. A bit spicy and stout for the grade. - 10 bolts

P4: 10d - More slab/face climbing, similar to the previous pitch. - 12 bolts

Watch out for loose blocks on the summit ridge and to some extent on the lower section of the route.


Follow the trail just past Access Denied. Marked with nameplate.


You need 12 draws and a 60m.
All anchors have two bolts w/ chains and there are three on the summit.
