This is a short route that packs a punch. From the summit of the Coco Towers, step across the chimney to gain a little ledge. A crack splits the right face of a dihedral, going from finger locks to hands. The crux is at the bottom section.

There are no fixed anchors at the top of the dihedral so, after bringing up your follower, you must plan on continuing up to another route to be able to rappel. The most common option is to traverse 10 feet left to the 2nd pitch of Nuevas Dimensiones and follow that to the anchors at its top.


This route starts from the top of La Quinta, at the summit of the Coco Towers.


Standard rack up to #3 Camalot.
