5 out of 5 stars Great fun & sights

A great intro to multi-pitch. Gets hot in the afternoon even in January (bring lots of water). Safe and easy (On my first onsight I gave it a 5.9, but on the second go it is definitely a 5.8 as per the consensus here). Second assent: March 2, 2013 - so updated my info as to the correct info: (pitch # / grade / bolts / length in meters):
1 / 5.6 / 4 / 25m
2 / 5.7 / 6 / 30m
3 / 5.8 / 9 / 40m
4 / 5.8 / 10 / 50m
5 / 5.3 / 4 / 25m
There's a short walk on a path to the next pitch.
6 / 5.8 / 10 / 50m
7 / 5.1 / 1 / 15m
It is a bit run out in spots, but never in any places that a fall would be likely.
Get down by hiking past the crosses, down toward the north a bit, and then down to the south-east. You'll find a rappel station near the top of the old via ferrata-like ladder rungs. You can do the rappel down with one rope to a second rap station 40 feet from the bottom or do it with two ropes (for me, not having to carry the extra rope up 7 pitches is work the double rappel).

5 out of 5 stars Primer Largo

Muy hebrada la ruta, aunque bien protegida, hay un bolt antes de los pasos difíciles pero tampoco desperdiciaron bolts, si en 8-9 o 10 mts no hay nada difícil no esperes ver bolts.

5 out of 5 stars Excellent rock, beefy bolts and the view great.

I had the pleasure of Emilio Plascencio and Jaime Velasco for partners on this quick jaunt up such a wonderful fun route.
