Follow the large holds up to the anchors. Not one that you would want to fall on, with its low angle and giant cobblestones (of course, this could be said for any of the low angle routes at El Rito.)


The sixth route from the left end of the crag.


5 bolts to anchors.

Best to avoid. Strange moves and hard clips. This is an old warmup climb for the hard men. Not for a 5.8 leader. Moves up high not obvious.

Not a 5.8 warm up climb. It's a little heady and a few clips are in interesting locations. You wont miss out on anything if you decide not to climb this route.
