4 out of 5 stars Ridge (knife edge)

I have done this climb 2 times. Once solo once wit ha buddy. I respectfuly disagree about the rating, I would give it at most a VERY exposed 5.3 on BAD rock. If the "paso de la muerte" looks too bad you can rap down on the south side (25 feet) and scramble to the route past the difficult point.

3 out of 5 stars Solo

I had no prior knowledge of the route except for knowing that Paso de la Muerte was part of it and I should stay on top of the knife edge. I didn't and ended up at an impassable point where I had to free climb an overhang which was extremely exposed. I now know this was not a normal ascent of that route.
