Description 

A Palomas classic! One of the best moderates here, and quite a popular warm up. Start in the dihedral left of Patchwork. Stem through the first 2 bolts and head left onto the face. The crux is after the 5th bolt. The online guidebook notes 7 bolts and an "easy runout on the arete". I was recently told that an extra bolt was added to this climb, though I did not count the bolts. There may be 8. I also do not remember anything being significantly run out.


Protection 

7 or 8 bolts to anchors.

My favorite warm-up. If you're new to Palomas, it's worth the trek out not only for the climb, but for the quality hike and overview of the crag.
