Description 

Begin near where the road meets the wall on slabby orange rock; the climb is easily identified by an obvious hand-sized hueco and a mono about 50’ up. Thin moves off the deck lead to rests on some tufas out right. Then things get steep. Follow tufas and then jugs until you can traverse up and left to the chain anchor on Tufalero, but do not clip this anchor. Instead, bust up and back right past two more well-spaced clips to two stalactites and the anchor. This pitch has been called 5.13a but I thought it was more in the mid-twelve range; either way, great climbing.

CONDITION REPORT 
Currently closed due to concern over petroglyphs near the base... lame as driving a 4x4 quad 1 meter away from the petroglyphs is allowed... as is spraying grafitti all over the wall :p

This route is absolutely stunning. One of the best climbs I've ever done. The grading is a little confusing though cause its 13a in guidebook, the main developers topo says 12b and the locals say 12+. Who knows probably 13a in colorado were I climb. But 12+ anywere else, feels significantly harder than body grooving a 12c in the area.
