About La olita and the rim roofs:

Climbing back up to the top of La Barrosa after the middle earth one finds a large rocky mesa. Walking 200 meters or so takes one to the end of the flatest part of the mesa. Just below and to the northwest (on the racetrack side) are the rim roofs. About a half a dozen established problems from V4 to V6 with gobs of potential for more problems in this range or harder. Back up on the mesa and heading south east 100 meters more one encounters a small cluster of boulders in a flat, grassy enclove. La olita is a small, wave shaped boulder with a great landing and about a half dozen problems, mostly V0 and V1, although there is a nice V2. There are also several good (and harder) traverses on a couple of satellite boulders.
