It comes in from the left, traverses just above the white stripe, then follows the stripe until it turns grey, then up lighter colored rock to the horizontal, ending at anchors on bulbous shield on left skyline before low angle rock and the summit.
It's maybe 60+ ft long and overhangs 12.

we finaly climbed the whole thing today but not clean. Must add a belay at the stance under the roof as the rope drag is unbearable.

Today: rain. Yesterday: La Vigilancia, but got so busy climbing I didn't take pictures. Managed to snap a photo of friend Martín and son getting ready to rappel into the base of the climbs:

Took Jack up the classic Waves at Mt. Rushmore last week. Funny how he will style some of the hard for the grade and sustained 5.9 cracks at Devils Tower and get spanked on a 5.8 face climb that has many rests.

Raining today pretty hard so probably not happening today. Seems like a good day to watch soccer.

we tried again to free this beast yesterday. this is the most we have ever projected a route. I bolted it ground up which took a few days and now we have 3 days of attempts to free it.. i also rapped in a few times last year to trundel. It is kicking my butt....

After all this talk about the best first ascent style we decided to go out and see what the hype was all about. Instead of confronting the plethora of clean, gymnastic sport climbs or the multitude of world class boulders avalaible in the area, we decided to go and do some honest-to-goodness supertopo best-first-ascent-style first ascents.

Afterwards Martín did what I believe is called a "pink-point" ascent, clipping the gear I had already placed on lead. While admittedly this is very poor style for a first ascent, I believe it is considered acceptable style for the second ascent.

I have to admit, we had a blast doing this (and several other) best-first-ascent-style first ascents. However, next weekend (if the weather holds) I think we're back to sport climbing.

Then we decided to go for an unclimbed crack/groove.
It was packed with dirt and pine needles which made the GU lead a bitch.
We yo yo'd it.
The crack led to an interesting chimney with dikes and huecos and eventually led to an established bolted face to the top of the pinnacle.
