To reach the last five routes on this wall take a right once you hit the wall coming from the parking area. This route is the first line of bolts on the left. Climb straight up on small edges and side pulls to the chain anchor.

21 Hechicera / Necesito Mi Padre

3 meters right of 'Unknown'. Climb the clean face up and trend right to chain anchor under small cactus.

5.10cSport 30m, 10
22 Cat Gut / The Alvinator

5 meters right of 'Hechicera'. Climb the clean gray rock straight up the anchor on 'Hechicera'. (sharing anchor)

5.10dSport 30m, 10
23 Desert Porn Sport
24 Cat Scratch Fever

3 meters right of 'Cat Gut'. Follow obvious black water streak to cold shut anchor. The climb starts with a slab and quickly turns into a vertical face climb. Clipping the 3rd bolt is a little sketchy because the fall is directly over the slab start. There is an intermediate anchor for rapping down.
