Description:

Towards the left side of the El Dorado Cave Start in a bouldery corner to pockets and a crack. Crank the roof crack then travers to the left and pull the roof. You're not done yet though, a few more moves will bring you to a stance and the chains. Recently a hold broke on the starting boulder problem, making it significantly more difficult. Now, what was a good side pull/finger lock is a bad side pull. We have saved the piece of rock, but yeah, maybe it's like 12d or harder now, sorry.

Descent Options:

Lower down or rap
