Description 

Even better than its popular neighbor to the left. Start up a left facing corner/ramp sharing a start with a climb that continues up the corner. Step left using good pockets to a bouldery start. As the climb straightens out, the climbing eases a bit on endless 2-4 finger comfortable pockets that flow well through some amazingly fun climbing. 2 closely spaced bolts mark the crux with a left and right method likely making use of a comfortable mono before some easier climbing before the chains. Compared to its popular neighbor Rata Arraconada, this line is slightly easier, has better pockets, overall has a better flow and lacks the difficult finish/anchor clip. Listed at 7a but likely soft at that. You can also continue to a second anchor to extend the pitch into the grey rock above but supposedly the quality of rock/moves degrades though it does bump the grade to 7a+ or 12a.

Location 

On the left side of the crag, after passing some of the super steep routes, you will pass some orange rock and a section of rock with a 3 foot roof with a few climbs going up it. This climb is part of a cluster of 7a's just beyond that section with the orange roof.
