Finishing up on Rodent Outhouse. August 2009.


Good climbing on thin-for-El-Rito holds with a good pocket every now and then leads to a big ledge. This ledge originally had a fair amount of rodent solid-waste, thus the name. It has been cleaned up nicely though--no worries.
Two more bolts on juggier terrain take you to the anchor bolts. Crux section is going through the area around the fourth bolt.
For more information, see Vaino's website.


This is the bolted line just left of Jug-or-Naut


7 bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

The twin 11s of Jug-or-naut and Rodent Outhouse are pretty similar. If you do one, you might as well do the other. Jug-or-naut is at least a letter grade harder... fewer big jugs to shake out on.
