The Cascade Wall, Kola Loca. Zack Smith and I climbed a line, Kola Loca (V 5.10 A2+), on The Cascade Wall of Basaseachic. The route ascends the prominent dihedral system some distance left of the waterfall and the prominent black streak. Climbers since have called this a rappel route. We fixed the first three pitches, then spent two nights on the wall while climbing the last four pitches. The route was mostly aid, with a little dirty free climbing. Nel, the curator of the local curio shop, has the only detailed topo in existence.
