This route is actually on the formation just to the right (south) of big pine wall. I included it in big pine wall routes because there is only one route on the formation. Climb up through the three bolts to the anchors. Decent warm up but there are much better routes at El Rito!


3 bolts to anchors.

Poorly bolted. Ground fall potential. Moves are weird. I have seen several falls. An old El Rito route. Newer 10a routes less sustained.

Deck potential if you fall clipping the third bolt. Moves are odd but fun, beta intensive more than anything. Look for unseen things...

Not unsafe in anyway. The holds are large pockets and wonderful for clipping.
