Jody on Left El Shinto


Immediately left of Center El Shinto, following the prominent streak just to the left. Possibly easier than CES because of better rests.


Many bolts.

Thinner and more technical/balance climbing than Center but not as pumpy. Take it how you will.

I think at most crag this is 12a. Maybe one could push it to 12b but 12c is really, really, really soft at the grade.

Great fun mostly on edges. There are sections of fairly continuous climbing on small edges & at times thin feet, but reasonable rests in a couple places. A couple good pockets as well help to recover. I still got pumped out way above, not a physical one but crimping on edges for bolts on end does take its toll.

The hardest section, IMO, is down below around 2-3 rd bolt (not sure).

A tad harder than both Cocaine Rodeo& Dope Shinto.
