Description

1: Gain the El Nino arete then immediately traverse down and right to a bolted belay stance above the overhang. 2: Climb the bolted slab to below the notch then continue on gear and build an anchor around the base of the crack. 3: Climb the crack, narrowing from fists to thin hands before it disappears. Continue to a bolted belay at the big terrace.

Ethic

Bolts are only placed where no gear is available. If that means one gear placement on an otherwise bolted pitch, so be it.
