This route climbs out the impressive steep wall above the main cave. Look for the long rope hanging from a draw high in the right cave. Soul Power is the route to the left, with a chain draw hanging at the steepest point.

Start off on steep power moves (stick clip very nice here) to a gain the vertical face, then do some easier moves to good rests before moving up into the maw below the sickness.

Hearken back to thy primordial roots and brachiate onto the hanging stalactites. Tufa recovery strategies essential here. Summon thy courage, and call upon thy forearms lest they fail thee to conquer the tufa,sidepulls and crimps required of thee before clipping the golden chains and rescuing the tecate princess sunbathing and waiting for her hero.


Rope hanging in the roof be thy guide. See it? Soul Power is the route to the left. Steep start.
