Description 

The crux is about 15 ft from the ground where the holds fade and the rock pushes you off. Challenging nubs and almost overhanging make this an interesting challenge. Watch out for crumbling holds if you get off route!

Location 

Enter Cumbe Mayo park pass the ceremonial rock alter and procede to the rock forest. Look to your left as you begin walking down into the valley. 10 min from Cumbe Mayo parking.

Protection 

There is no fixed gear and no cracks for protection. Maybe some tricams could be used in pockets. Good natural anchors at the top.
