One of the more identifiable features on the cliff is this long black lichen streak formed along a small occasional watercourse about half-way between the major roofs of Juniper Overhang and Techo al Derecho. The knobby face and color give the impression of refritos (refried beans). Climb directly up the streaks, passing a roof 2/3 of the way up, and continue to Juniper Ledge (2-bolt belay, full 50m pitch!). This pitch is poorly protected, but well worth doing if you're very comfortable at the grade. At the top of the pitch you might be tempted to move out right rather than continuing up the dihedral above (route 6A). It's been done, but it's not worth it, due to very poor quality rock.

Much better this time. The protection was good and my placements were right on. I also finished out the 2nd pitch, this time more of an Arete/ridge route to the right of the belay anhors. This route was very good.

Great route. On the 1st pitch the protection was a little thin in the middle. The 2nd pitch was great also; After headwall at the top of the 1st diheadral I kept going straight up a face (the protection was thin here also).
