|This is my favorite route at el potrero after 4 weeks of climbing there. Steep, long and varied. Easily tamed with a single rack of cams. The last pitch is indeed tricky. Since I got within 6 inches of the onsight, I'd better call it 12 A.|

Awesome adventure! This route needs more traffic. So, skip Potrero cleaning days and go clean some weeds and rocks off this route.
The first pitch 11d pocketed "face" is the money pitch and the crux of the original line IMO. A very rude awakening.
The 11c/d pitch before the last one (12b), seemed way easier than 10d pitch downstairs. So, it may be a typo.

A neglected classic. This is one of Potrero' s finest long routes.
The apache line is a good option for the first pitch.

|This is a good route! Bolts are spaced well, but you wont die (probably). You can bring a small rack to supplement if you want.|
