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.

Underrated. A fantastic warm-up for Gaucho/Zorro. Fun, varied climbing throughout. Stemming -> Pockets -> layback crack. Seemed clean.
