BETA PHOTO: Left El Diego leads up a series of ledgey overhang...


Usually dry even when the rest of the cliff is seepy.
Interesting moves lead up to a wierd overhanging a cool traversing move. Most of the moves are overhanging face moves.

Very fun for the grade.

Awesome climb, this route and the 5.7 to the left of it were the most fun routes in this section of the wall. The 5.7 (although easier) might actually be even more fun.

I have come to like this climb quite a bit. A little tuggish and the finish can be rather stiff if you have shortish reach. Definitely 2.5 stars in my book.
