Located on the north side of la peña on the Quiote buttress with access from Chichi-Dho. It is a well bolted 4 pitch route, takes a standard 12 draw rack and a 60 meter rope.

Rappel the route; each anchor is bolted with three anchor bolts with two having chains and one extra bolt. The top anchor has bolts and rings for rope management on rappel.

  1. 5.10c, a crux start with very specific balancy moves, that get your attention at the beginning of the climb.

  2. 5.10a, step slightly right and find a variety of patina's that range from small scoops and edges to chicken heads.

  3. 5.8, a slabby characteristic with smooth and rounded holds up a finger that runs along a gully garden of cactus.

  4. 5.9, step across the gully and begin on an arette with blocky moves and attention getting exposure.

Top out on a large ledge with a small cactus garden. There is an anchor with rings that facilitate good rope management on rappel and an additional bolt for the safety of a second person.

Start is a right leaning ramp with the route trending left to a highly featured finish.

A tricky start leads to some wild climbing up high. An instant classic.

The First climb put up on lead at this fantastic crag. Don't let the grade fool you. You are in for a sweet ride!

Tighten your laces for this one. Super tecky start on small feet and hands lead to a super finish. Don't let your guard down!

Fun right leaning ramp leads to an interesting crux up high. Watch out for the sting at the end.
