From Hot Corona's base, walk down & right to the end of the ledge. Make a couple moves up right onto a shelf. Further down this is a left-slanting ramp to a good bolt. Pass this bolt to another shelf. Traverse left under a big yucca. Go over bulge past a bad bolt to another shelf and a nice crack system with big holds and occasional pro. Head right onto ridge at the top of the crack system to big ledge and tree/boulder anchor at the top.

Eds. Per KJS: this is on private land. All land to the right of the East Animas designated climbing trail is on private land. Please respect their request to not climb here. Thanks.


It is on the obvious buttress/ridge at the far right end of E.A.


Medium hexes, small to medium wires, bolts.
