This is not bad climbing, but it is wandering and discontinuous. Nevertheless, it is a fun warm-up. Two climbs to the left of the obvious dihedral that is Copacetic, Ninos y Viejos begins right off the trail as opposed to the ledge system higher up.


6 bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

Per mike and steve: 2 bolts have been removed. Be warned, bring small pro & prepare to run out.

Has a move or two that are as hard as most of the 10 slabs in Penetente. The bolts protect the cruxes but a fall before cliping one or two of them could land you on a ledge (5.7 R, maybe)

2 bolts have been removed from N y V. Be warned, bring small pro & prepare to run out. Still worth doing!

This climb was re-bolted (including a new anchors) with modern hardware as part of the 2014 Penitente project weekend - no bolts were added to the existing ones.
