Grade Route
5.9 X Sandra Trad 370m, 15

First pitch has been bolted and partially cleaned to provide access to "The Vatican".

5.12 Aesop's Top rope

Start "Sandra" then move right at the first palm tree to top-rope the smooth concave face.

5.13 Pocket Socrates Sport 30m
5.13a *** Cyclops Sport 30m
5.12- *** Malinche Sport 30m
5.10a ** Sin Soul Sport 30m

Old trad route that has been bolted.

5.9 ** El Pirata Sport 42m

Another retro-bolted trad route.

BEWARE: This route is too long even for a 70m rope, lots of loose rock in the rappel, lots of friction, lots of spikey plants. I would stay away from this one.

To rap on one rope, use anchor from "Sin Soul" as an intermediate.

5.11a ** The Raven Sport 90m, 3
5.10d * The Rattler Sport 90m, 3
5.10a * The New Ape Man Sport 60m, 3
5.11- La Primavera Trad 100m, 3

Might find 3-4 bolts per pitch, but should bring gear.

Route should be considered dangerous due to rock fall potential.

5.10d *** Pitch Black Sport 6

Climbs the big black streak on the eastern side of the canyon at the top right of the Conundrums crag.

P1 - 5.9+ P2 - 5.10+ P3 - 5.9 P4 - 5.10+ P5 - 5.10- P6 - 5.10+

Use a 70 m rope.
