Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez, known ...


This is the left finish of Touchy Subject.

The left "Tuco" finish is discussed in the TS route but, yes, I go slightly left of whatever horror show Boissal et al are doing. Essentially, from the last bolt on TS go slightly left, then into a shallow groove and clip long off of a good sloper. From here there's a good edge out right, then straight up, using the groove corner from left and good edges for your right. Jugs on top to clip chains. While this section is the crux for all left side routes it's not that hard, maybe elevating things just a touch. Really good for added pump as you get some long routes.


Start TS and finish left up steep wall to Daisy anchor.


Retro bolted.
