A beautiful route and perhaps the best 5.9 in Los Gigantes (if Espolon is 10a). Begins in a short, 5.7 dihedral (protects with stoppers), makes an airy move onto a steep, bolt protected face, skirts a strange roof, and then climbs an exposed, rounded arete to a crux move at the very top, reaching for a mesmerizing crystal. Too much fun.

Descent Options:

There are two rap stations so you can rappel with one 60m rope.
