A fantastic, long pitch full of pockets and crimps! Start about 5 meters left of the Central Scrutinizer and head up and left for 50 meters. Gringo Disco can be descend with a single 60m rope by using other anchors (e.g. Mr. P. Mosh or the Central Scrutinizer).


Bolts with anchors.

No single move seemed harder to me than 11a but the length makes it harder than most 11a's.

70meter rope gets you close but your belayer will need to scramble up to a small ledge about 10 feet up to finish lowering to the ledge.
