This route consists of two solid pitches. Described by Jeff Jackson in Mexico Rock as sporty, you will definitely be clenching at the end of the first pitch. The climbing is straight forward, but toward the top of the route you will definitely notice the lack of bolts. After making a thin move with the potential for big air, you will breathe a big sigh of relief when you clip those anchors. The second pitch is more straight forward and definitely feels considerably toned down after the first pitch.


Located next to the right of another excellent route, The Raven. This route will share the same ledge at the end of the first pitch.


Fully bolted. Rap from cold shuts at the top of the second pitch. A 60 m rope should be sufficient.
