Steve at the top of Via Manolo.


Climb a slab past some bolts to a roof, then through the crux on thin holds and continue up the face and arete to the top.


Climb out the left side of the large roof.

Great climb a little run out with some loose rock. I love this route. It is big fun.

Clearly two cruxes (if there can be two) through the middle. Thin holds throught the middle, I had to work my feet up to get this one done. Clips typically from good stances. Good route.

This route has a loose rock a little larger than a brick between bolts 4 and 5, it is chalked up and looks like a great jug. It might pull it out onto your belayer if you're not careful.

This would be a four star route except I couldn't enjoy the climbing when I was just concerned about not blowing the crux moves and flying into a ledge. Was this route bolted on lead? If not, why the spicy bolt job? Nobody will die from a fall here and the climbing is not that hard, but...jus' sayin'.

Aaron, the first time I led this I blew the crux moves and took a clean fall, I don't know what ledge you're talking about. Since then, I have led it 3 or 4 times, it definitely makes you climb between bolts, but I don't see any reason to put more bolts in.

The upper crux in particular has a ledge you could fly into. Perhaps I did the crux more right from where intended and the rail I grabbed had lots of lichen or loose grit on it. By this time, I'm a full body length or even more above last bolt and looking at an 8" protruding ledge feature below that. I'm not suggesting adding bolts, but just be careful on this one. I didn't want to take that fall, I'm too old to heal from broken ankles. The climbing is probably great on this route, but maybe my head isn't.

Oh I get where you are talking about at that point most people go around the corner to the left, right before the anchors. That is a spicy way to top off this route, good job, man.

Hey everyone, pulled a car door-sized block of this one today. Definitely has changed the climbing after the crux over the roof, during the course of this accident which left my belayer mildly injured and my rope totally screwed I left an alpine draw with Camp biners on it. So if you grab it and wanna boost your karma, my number is 678-662-7541.
