A long and varied route up a somewhat hidden face behind a large pine tree.

Like many of the other routes at Amazonia, begin the route with a thrutchy and cruxy roof move to surprise incuts. Establish your feet over the roof, and enjoy the technical, yet not physically demanding, face climbing to the anchors.

There are several opportunities to gain rests. And be careful of the raptor ledge about midway up the route--you wouldn't want to get caught climbing into the nest by mamma bird.


On the far left end of the wall. This is the second route from the left that starts behind the large, lone pine tree.


7 bolts and chain anchors

I think Burdo describes the route: if you don't do at least 1 heal hook, you are a boring person. YESSSSS

Raptor nest??? Sorry thats a rat nest yall, covering the entire ledge you climb up on. The whole thing is poop- 3 inches deep of dry poop over the whole thing. Dont be surprised when you grab a fist full of shit, you cant avoid it! One of the, if not the best route on the wall.

Very run-out if you start straight up, you can also traverse in on the left side of ledge.

Nice route. Has two roofs, a balancy section and some slab. You can easily walk around the nest.
