A real surprise!! This was to be a warm-up for "Spinner Bait," but in many ways turned out to be a better route than we first thought.
The opening moves are steep but the technical crux, found between bolt 2 and 3 will make you think twice. Great line and stiff for the grade.
New line as of (01-14-10), so it's quite dirty still. Worth the effort. Plus... once it's all cleaned up, it will be a new stealer 5.9 for the area.
This is a new route at a new formation, so helmets, at least for the belayer, should be considered when climbing at "The Guppy."
Fun climbing on good stone!! The upper slab section is mellow with great views!!
"Fish Taco" is the right most route on "The Located on "The Guppy" which is found up hill between "The Primo Wall" and "The Crystal Tower." It climbs the right side of the formations steep arete then turning onto a nice slab face above.
5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor. Stick clipping the 1st bolt is advisable!! The best way to clean the line is by top-roping the 2nd or some one gets to climb it twice!!! Fun!!
