Starts to the right of the large chimney area. A spicy (and improbable looking) start (1st crux) over a yucca plant via a reachy sloping mantle stem move to get your first piece (small off-set cam or nut). Leaders who use stick clips on sport climbs won’t be happy. Continue up the chossy crack system to the horizontal roof (2nd crux). Solid hand jams sans feet pull the roof. Continue up the cracks with a fixed rap up and left.

Scramble up to the mid-level in the gully and belay out of a hole below the bolt. Grainy slab start leads past one trad placement to a single bolt. Continue up the shallow crack system until you can move right into a much deeper, varnished crack. Follow this crack up to the horizontal roof. Place a piece under the roof and make the crux move of the pitch by stemming your right foot out and countering with your left hand on a small horn. A C4#1 placement in a pod crack protects the initial run out until the upper crack system develops into twin cracks to the top. The gear rap takes a C4#3 and a smaller piece. A fixed rap sits atop Kemosabe. By far the most impressive climb on the chossy Great Burrito.

This is the best rock on the Great Burrito. Scramble all the way to the upper ledges. Look for the varnished crack that starts in a small chimney and follow it to the top. Felt soft for a Jtree 5.8. At the horizontal roof level, but to the left of it, continue up a varnished crack to the top. A boulder can be slung and backed up with a C4#2 horizontal for a top rope or rap. A fixed rap is atop Kemosabe.
