Andrea heading into the crux on the first ascent.


First route to the left of Mariscos Lambada. Watch out of the rotten bank at the start. Other than that, it is a good route on good stone that will clean nicely after a little travel. Interesting power crux to gain the fins and a nice stem.


Just left of Mariscos the Snow Cone Wall 5.8. Start between Mariscos and little bush growing out of a rock ledge.


6 bolts plus anchors (there were 2 biners in the anchors as of 8-09).

This guy is currently really loose & dirty. Use a stick clip and have your belayer stand to the side. It looks like this will become a nice route if it ever gets properly cleaned.

Yeah, this thing is pretty clean and fun now. Classic Rifle pinches on solid, textured stone. There is a tricky clip exiting the short crux above a ledge that a person might hit if s/he blew it with slack out, though. A leader breaking into the 5.10 grade might appreciate a pre-hung draw there.
