Rockfax Description
6b+, S1. A wonderful climb in a great location. Crank it out along the base of the face beyond the corner of Ixtlan until all looks lost at an overhanging arete. The flowstone crack above is climbed with difficulty to more friendly ground. At the top of the wall move left and pull through the final overhangs on good holds. © Rockfax

jbulger 7 Aug, 2010 Solo dnf second attempt of this traverse. a teasing drop down around the corner that requires a foot just out of reach if you're of the slightly shorter stature! hopefully will find an alternate way on the next (3rd time's the charm) try.
