Make some hard moves at the start to get established on the route. Nice to pre-clip the first bolt and easy to scramble up the ledge left of the route to do so. Continue upward making an awkward traverse left, and continue to the anchors making a few more tricky moves.

While it's nice to climb something overhanging of a more moderate grade at Palomas, this route is so amazingly contrived that it only gets 1 star from me. Perhaps the crux of the route is not moving 2 feet left to stand on the pillar for the first two bolts.


Leftmost route at Palomas, around corner from previous climbs.


4 Bolts to 2 bolt anchors.

This things pretty hard for the grade, if you stay on the bolt line.
