About 50 meters past Black Slabbeth and Manly Bulges (13b/c through a black bulge), Oscar de la Cholla is the first route left of a brushy alcove. It starts with some easy face climbing, and then follows a line of bolts left of a crack. The crack goes from hands to fist and down to fingers, and the route offers an abundance of holds on the face as well. A ledge at the fourth bolt provides a good rest before launching into the sustained moves above.
A great warmup and a fine moderate lead.

Great route for taking a break from the 10s or working up to them. It has big hands and feet with good rests-fun; but, a bolted crack?

Big jugs, fun jug haul? You guys sure your on the right route? Everything felt like an open handed side-pull to me. If your use to this style of climbing you might find it easier. Pretty heady for the 5.9 leader.

It was decent. The 5.9 immediately to the right of this route was better we thought. Pretty polished down low.
