|Rico Suave Buttress
Add Photo Add Comment Printer View
Climb slightly overhanging terrain up and to the left. Continue working up and right to a big horizontal crack. Crimp and pimp your way through the crux ( which is slightly harder than the grade because of a broken flake), then balance your way to the anchors.

This is a really nice climb! Well worth doing if you're in the area for the others. The crux after the 4th bolt is interesting and committing on lead since the holds don't improve much as you head into the slabby section to reach the shuts and you're a decent amount off the last bolt. There's a lot of crappy holds chalked up since this is easily toproped by many after doing Rico.

We climbed this route during the 2011 New River Rendezvous and many people mentioned that one of the crux holds had "recently" broken making the sequence much harder than the given grade.
