Mestdagh crankin' in Penitente Canyon.

Description 

In an attempt to divide the main Canyon into a couple distinct areas, this area covers the climbs on both the right and left side of the canyon until the side canyon branches to the right (at Captain America). Watch out for snakes.


Getting There 

From the main directions, follow the road into Penitente & park in the parking lot. One main trail enters the canyon - follow it. The first routes (including Mysterious Redhead) will be on the right after a long 30 second walk. Please stay off closed trails.

This route is on a large orange wall just off the trail about 100 feet past the Colors of Emotion wall. The route goes up a sort of shallow gully right next to a large black streak.
