About 10 feet right of Gaucho is a chimney with raspberry bushes in the upper portion. Cirque du Sauve climbs the face/bulge just left of the chimney. Stem your way up past several bolts before committing to the left face. Climb sharp pockets and edges over a couple bulges. Beware of loose rock on the upper half.
Right of Gaucho.
Many bolts, difficult to count from the ground.

This is a newer route that will become even more popular with traffic and cleaning. The anchors could be used to toprope Gaucho. Don't forget to eat some raspberries on your way up.
