New route up-date! Feb 21 2013

Well the season in Mexico is slowly coming to an end. I thought I would update all the new routes we have put up so far. Marc is developing a new crag close to El Salto, I have yet to go. I feel more keen on the projects here. I will climb for a few weeks and then, with a few days left before the wedding and heading north, I will try to sink in the last of the 400 pieces I have left. Hopefully bring the tally up close to 40 for the season. So far, 19 have gone up. Here is the list a a few shots I took over the past few weeks. Enjoy. :)

( the pictures are taking too much time. I'll get em up as soon as I get a good connection, promise ).

Midnight City 5.12d 22 bolts 40m Sub Anchor  Climb through the low crux at the thrid bolt with a thin pinch and throw. Then ease up and climb 35m of 11+ technical laybacks and thin slab climbing. Sub anchor to lower. Belayer beware. Can Lower off with a 80m. Full Anchors. FA/FFA Ulric Dec 2012
