Description 

Good climb to warm up on. Follow the sharp limestone holds up the line of six bolts that starts at the metal tab marked 12. One or two moves of 5.8 with the rest probably 5.7. Great views of the routes to the left.

Location 

After arriving at the base of the wall, go up the steep trail with a knotted fixed rope along the base of the wall and go right. Routes are marked with small, round metal tabs for the route number as listed in the online guidebook published by Aventuras Tierra Adentro.

Protection 

Six bolts to a bolted anchor.

Super fun route although a bit runout at the beginning, especially for the grade. Compared to the other 5.8's at the crag and around the world this comes in at the 5.6-7 grades with a few body lengths of crux. Nice rock and the anchor has steel lowering carabiners in place so very convenient.
