I was at El Rito last weekend and noticed that I hadn't taken down the red tag on this route yet. I left it up because I wanted to do some more cleaning on it. I got on it again and cleaned it up a bit more. It still has some unfortunate loose, gritty rock through the crux section, but I don't think anything deadly will come off.
This route is a jug-haul to the third bolt, has a reachy crux past the third bolt, and some thinner moves to the anchor. There is kind of a "run-out" between the third and fourth bolts, but I don't think you'd want to stop and clip there anyway.
This is the farthest left route on the Cellar Wall, formerly known as the "Unfinished New Route". You'll see it when looking straight up the Route Canal.
Four SS, 1/2", Rawl 5-piece protection bolts and hangers to a 2BA with large SS quick clips.

Better than I expected. Runout is no big deal. Nice addition.

Fun route, cool sequences on pinches thru the crux. Probably already a touch easier than 11d, and will continue to get easier as it cleans up.
