One of the longest routes at Palomas, Vertical Nothing is the last "Entrance Area" route before the Slab Wall.

Climb through the choss to a vertical seam/dihedral feature. There's a small dead tree stump in this feature. The intense, balancey crux hits in the first four bolts. followed shortly by a no hands stance on the obvious slab. Continue left-ish along the slab to a pumpy 5.11- finish.


Furthest left (N) route at the Entrance. Also the 5th bolted route from the right on this wall (not counting DOuble D's).


8 Bolts. 2 BA.
