The only strange thing about this route is the location of the first bolt. Its placement in a protruding cobble does not inspire confidence. Many cobbles have pulled out over the years at Wheeler Gorge. As shown in the lower of the photos, there is a gaping hole from a pulled cobble just a couple of feet away from the first bolt.  <br /> <br />Since the first bolt protects the clear crux of the route, I was definitely wishing for something more reassuring.

Geology buffs should not miss climbing at Lower Gibraltar. The ledge at the base of Lieback Annie and the Rapture is home to some of Santa Barbara's finest slickensides.

Just downhill and across the stream from Renaissance Crag is giant cliff band that is home to the historic route "Fun in the Sun" by Forkash and Anderson.  <br /> <br />To get to the Fun in the Sun Wall, follow a climber's trail up the obvious gully on the left, which is reached 50 yards before the stream crossing where Renassaince Crag is located. The first two routes that are reached along the trail are Cupcakes & Champage (5.9+) and Labrador Cupcakes (5.6).
