Grade Route

Starts just south of the obvious gully and heads up a slab to a bolt beneath the roof to the right. Step into the steep gully, plugging small cams, and head up to another bolt at top of the ridge, then climb over the big block . Sling huge boulders above for an anchor. 15 meters, two bolts. There are no bolted anchors at the top, so bring enough gear to build an anchor. GEAR: Small to medium cams, nuts, slings.

Climb the big slab just right of the gully, up to a left-sloping ramp beneath a small overhang where the ramp ends. Then head straight up and slightly to the left, following the crack system that tops out between the gully and the huge vertical block (the “Perch”). Head further up on easy ground and build an anchor in blocks to the left of the Perch. There are no bolted anchors at the top. GEAR: Small to medium cams, nuts, slings.

Follows the start of The Red Zone to the end of the ramp, then head straight up and slightly to the right, following a winding crack system all the way to the top. The crux is the last there meters beneath the top-out below the Perch. Build and anchor up and left of the Perch. GEAR: Small to medium cams, nuts, slings.

Climb the slab plugging gear in the crack to the right while avoiding the serious barrel cactuses. Continue up the steeping face to beneath the small tree, plug a good piece, and make a move up and to the right of the tree (without grabbing it!). Then follow the slabby arête up to a two-bolt anchor at the base of the Hawk’s Perch. GEAR: Cams from .5” to 3”, nuts.
