|Penitente - Inner Canyon
This is the line just right of Tanks for Hueco. It shares the same start (a lieback up a black corner) and then heads up the fantastic pockets on the overhanging wall. In my opinion a more appropriate finish (in terms of difficulty) than Tanks for Hueco. Oh, the guide rates it at 11b, but it is not nearly that hard.
Quickdraws. Bolted anchor.

Awesome Line! Would've been four stars if it wasn't for the wet corner start.

Anchor Replacement, modernization: "After gaining the ledge, you are risking groundfall if you blow it climbing to the next bolt on an easy runout after that is unnecessary." Fixed 4/29/2012 with Bob D. and Tim Standing. Plan to replace SMC spinners with 28kN hangers on Anchor Replacement Weekend 5/12-13/2012. New sport anchor with chain, so please do not top rope through chains, use you draws and last climber rap.
