A quality alternative to the first pitch of Ixtlan. Start 20 feet right of Ixtlan, following 6 bolts through a tricky/insecure left-facing corner, two small roofs, and a thin final section up then traversing left to the Ixtlan pitch 1 anchor.


Other side of the bush.


Bolts, optional smallish placement before the first bolt.

This route is rad! Interesting climbing! One of the key crimps near the top is about ready to break. It's cracked and flexes quite a bit as of 5/15. A little glue could totally save the hold, but it would probably go and just be a touch harder without it.
