BETA PHOTO: heading up Tiro AL Blanco

Description 

This is one of the left most routes in zone el Riel. A little finesse and balance get you up the face next to a left facing corner. The crux comes while negotiating through the small roofs then its
easy going to the anchors.

Location 

Zona el Riel. At the far left

Protection 

Half a dozen draws should do it.

I think this one is actually the trad/sport line the follows up the seam on the left side of the crag. There's only one bolt. I place a couple of nuts down low, and only needed one other quickdraw.

This one has a few variations, not including the left arete which is easier but run out climbing. I'm not sure if they have names, but:

5.8 (3 bolts to anchors): Follow the bolt line and grab for the left arete. Don't turn the roof; go straight up to the anchor. Last part is a bit runout.

5.9 (4 bolts to anchors): Follow the bolt line. Step right at the roof to the slightly hidden bolt and pull through the roof dihedral.

5.10a (mixed trad/sport): Follow the dihedral right of the bolts initially (cams BD 0.3-1 or medium nuts) and then clip the bolt at the roof. One loose 6-IN rock at the roof.
