Seven Spanish Angels. February, 2010.


A must do! One of the best in Bishop. Climb the knobs and dyno for the tea-cup hueco at the lip.

it would definitely be advisable to try and get to this thing either early in the morning or on a fairly chilly day. once the sun hits the two pinches near the top become pretty awful

I agree to the comment above. Drove straight to this problem this passed Monday to try to send, but once the sun came over the horizon and started beaming on the holds, it just kept getting greasy and greasy. Hopefully I will get the send next visit.

Late in the afternoon the thing is shady too. Don't miss it!

Super fun!!!

If this is at your limit, you should hit it up on a cold windy day as that will make the crux feel a LOT more secure.

The jug IS huge.

IMO this is the premiere V6 in Bishop. It's got the best movement, the neatest holds, and one of the most aesthetic backdrops.

I hit this every night for 3 days till i finally sent it. Once its in the shade, get on it. i wouldnt climb this in the morning, unless you enjoy racing the sun

A beautiful climb, and in regards to the grade, the V-scale is such an arbitrary measurement. Someone will always think something's easy and something's hard. It's all relative. Just enjoy the climb.

When i was trying this thing for the first time in 2006 my buddy Chaz said, "I'm not giving you any beta, you'll thank me later." He was right. For me, part of the fun in bouldering is unlocking the sequence. Do what you like, but i recommend not watching the videos above.
