Description 

INCA ROADS 5.7 ** 140'’ M (8b)
Begin on the outer edge of the corner about 10'’ left of Buena Vista. Boulder up to the large ledge then climb the short dihedral. Step right and climb the face above staying just left of the large vertical crack. At the roof about 2/3rds of the way up step right to keep it easier and more consistent with the rest of the route. The upper 1/3rd eases off considerably. 3 bolt anchor over the top. The bolt protected crux is about 1/3rd of the way up, but a wide range of cams are needed (#0 to 4) to protect the whole routes as well.

Location 

Begin about 10' left from Buena Vista on the right end of the main West Wall.

Protection 

Mixed, 8 bolts and a wide range of cams (#0 to 4)

Sounds fun.

But I wonder why so many route names here are now all capitals. Is it a new thing, or am I going batty?

I know it's weird for some reason the Hull area has lots like that, just the way it started and I figured I should keep them consistent (although I don't really like them that way here). I thought at first you were going to ask why all the route names at this crag are of song titles…

So, I just never noticed before. I guess I am going batty. Already knew that though...

I recognize a few names as having a song connection, but it looks like I need to listen to a few more records.

Yes, "records" is the key word there, but they are all out on CD now…. :-)
