You have to walk off this route. There are two bolts on top of the ledge, about 3 feet from the edge. We walked off the backside and rapped down the anchors on top of Pachuco. There is a bolt on top making it easier/safer to get to the three bolt anchor of Pachuco. Great route and really fun to do such a long route. It's rated 10a but I felt like it was easier. The stemming is pretty easy, if you're comfortable with that, and the rest of it is pretty cruiser - big holds, good rock, etc.

A super fun longish route. Worth the walk off. Crux is the dihedral at the start.

Super fun route. Very well protected where you need it. Varied climbing with face, arete, flake, and dihedral. Well worth the walkoff

Great fun, nice airy finish. Depending on your skills either the bulge half way up or the initial dihedral could be considered the crux. Both are in the 5.9/10a range. Well worth doing.
