Description:

Park at the Power Station and hike in as for Mongo City. From the East end of Mongo City, hike down into the saddle below the two big power towers, then head north, towards the trail wash, until you come to the back of a small tower. Hike down around the right side and you will pass under "High Tension" (5.8+) to the base of "Alto Voltaje". Clip the high first bolt, mantle/grovel over the lip, and keep your shite wired tight as you work thin face and shallow pockets for the anchors.

Descent Options:

rap, lower, or downclimb off the back.
