Description 

A four pitch route which we climbed on our first day here. Pitch one is the crux and felt hard for the grade while pitches two through four were all about 5.9

Location 

Just to the left and outside of the Grand Grotta Cave

Protection 

20QD if you're linking the pitches (pitches one and two link well)

Sandbagged first pitch -- definitely harder than 6a+ (as listed in the guidebook) unless you're tall. The remaining 3 pitches are easily 5.8-. Also, do not rap to climber's right, even though there is a small gully and additional set of anchors there! Make sure to throw your rope over the cliff directly below the rap anchors.
