Spectacular crack just left of the right-slanting crack of "The Nagual".
A 60m rope will just get you to a ledge above the ground, from which you can easily downclimb. Be careful.
The route can be TRd with some care - scramble up the gully a ways to the left (the second gully!).
Pro to 1.5".
Even more gorgeous in person. Begs to be climbed!

classy thin crack technique will help...

This is a fun route.
I do not agree with the gear beta. You will want 2 #2s for the lower part of the route. If I recall, the route liked large finger sized cams, so triple up in that size if you want to stitch her up.

Area classic! Great thin crack liebacking with great rests between 5.10 moves. Very good gear.

doubles or triples of everything from BD .1 to 1.
Particularly used several .1, .2, .3, .5, 1 plus a few smaller nuts.
Perfect stone the whole way. Mental crux never let up for me but gear placements are all bomber. Powerful 5.10 crux immediately after the pillar with 2 or 3 strenuous gear placements. Big rest, less powerful crux, BIG rest, fair mental crux to top.
My slightly chopped 70m just barely reached. Depending on how much stretch you get out of your 60m, it may not make it.

Tough climbing moves, but the real crux is placing gear in between moves. Definitely eases significantly up higher, as you can stay on your feet more.

Felt harder than 10c to me. And some small nuts definitely help protect thin sections. Really great climb.
