Many great days at El Rito involve the Number Two Red whether you're talking about El Farolito or climbing on Walt's Wall.

If you manage to survive the loose, steep approach trail to the base of the route, start with a few moves to get over an initial steep section to the cruiser middle section clipping three bolts along the way. Then climb up steepening cobbles past three more bolts to the top.


This route starts uphill about fifty feet right of Drive-By Genocide just past the big, dead, leaning tree. Hangers are pretty well cammoed so look hard.


6 bolts to a two bolt anchor with carabiners.

The approach gully up to the base of this route and Drive-By Genocide now has a number of steps installed using 2x10s and rebar for support. It makes it much less of a pain to get up there and hopefully serves to support the soil and rocks in the gully.

The right anchor bolt nut on this climb needs tightening, so next person up please bring a wrench.

The start is the most difficult part of this climb but after bolt 2 the climbing gets easier for the rest of the route. A fun climb! The fixed carabiners at the chains are severely grooved.
