Description:

Begin at the right side of developed routes, look for a large tree with a crack below a series of huge holes leading to top. P1: Part way up is an overhang/crux then easy to anchors in cave (5.10b, 30m). P2: starts out the overhang of the Ojo-hole/belay cave to fingery crux moves and gets easier to two big holes, rest a while in second ojo directly above the rappel anchor (you can split route in two), go left to clip the first bolt then back right and up to a large ledge (5.11d, 58m). P2: traverses right around the corner to a hanging belay below a steep face leading to the crux face/crack (5.9, 6m). P3: The crux pitch begins with steep thin face to an intermittent crack that goes from tips to big fingers (11+/12-, 30m), semi-hanging belay. P4: up easier ground to a final difficult bulge (11a, 20m).

Descent Options:

rappel with double ropes or single 70m on a different route directly below the 4th pitch anchor. You can rappel the route using draws to back-clip to the anchors on pitch 2 and 4, but this is not recommended.
