Same as all the routes in this area, the start is the hardest part. The opening moves can be dirty due to runoff and animal habitat.

Leading this is sooo much better than top roping! The rope drag and on top rope can be real pain.

Take a shoulder length runner to clip the last bolt before the anchor; it helps reduce the rope drag.


Starts in the middle of the Laguna cave on a line of tufas that make the overhang way easier than it looks.
Locate a cleared dirt slope leading to a small cave opening covered by a wire fence. The route starts here.


Bolted with a good two bolt anchor at the top.

Count the bolts before you go and make sure you locate the anchors. Jungle conditions change from season to season.
