|Penitente - Entrance Area
This is the 5th route encountered on the right, when entering the canyon, on the next little "blob" after the "Mysterious Redhead" blob.
This is a good route for it's height, and I recommend it. Relatively speaking, it is not sharp, it has nice, positive holds and a powerful little boulder problem crux. I don't understand why this route sits in obscurity, while other, sharper routes get lots of traffic.
If you're looking for an 11+ to try, get on this one...it's better than it looks.
It gets early morning sun or afternoon shade and is sunny in the winter.

I agree with the above description. This route is way better than it looks. The holds are surprisingly positive and the boulder problem start is really good. Don't walk by this one!
