El Trepon de la Zegua is a fun two-pitch climb, split in the middle by a large sloping, vegetation covered ledge. Although, hardly a true two pitch climb (a 70m rope will run the whole route), the ledge does provide for a very convenient second belay. The first pitch goes at 5.11b, while the second pitch is rated at 5.10b. Start at the large crack and follow it up to the horizontal ledge before traversing to the right, and then continue to follow the crack up the wall into pockets and ledges before the first set of anchors. Top out and set up a top belay on the large ledge before moving on to the juggier second pitch, which continues up the rock tower to the final anchors. Find the very difficult and technical crux at the third bolt. Some may say that this climb is harder than the given grade

Ethic: inherited from Pico Blanco
Respect the land owners.
They are kind enough to let you use their property for your enjoyment.
Respect other climbers.
Climbing is a community sport where the only opponent is the cruel crux that sends you airborne.
Respect the environment.
Above all, respect the environment. The plants, the earth and the rock itself were here long before you came into existence and will continue to exist long after you are gone. Sustain its survival by treating it properly.
  • Pick up trash, even if it is not your own. Take at least one piece out on every trip.

  • Do not kill flora or fauna, no matter how small or large.

  • Live and climb as though you are organic with your environment.
