Comments: This climb is phenomenal. No moves are terribly cruxy, the real difficulty comes from the ridiculous pump. However, the cruxes do come a bit past the bolts, which are around 8 ft apart or so for most of the route. Adds some mental stimulation to the fun!

Comments: Got on this on Memorial Day, super fun route! Some holds are a little dusty.

Route is still mostly climbable and very fun! Missing a bolt that could put you into groundfall range from 30 feet up or so, with some cruxiness before it. Bring your lead head for this and a few alpines to lower the clip down for other leaders with you who might want a more reasonable clipping stance.

There's a lower-off biner before the ledge up top to lower off of, might be worth being familiar with one-bolt ... more >>

Comments: First bolt is missing a hanger. Can either stick clip it (big branch at the base if you don't have one) or just skip it, the moves to the second bolt are pretty cruiser.

Comments: Short people rejoice! If you're tall and lanky, the crux on this feels like a 12a/b.

Comments: ~16 bolts to do as one pitch, two possible first pitch starts. Right one is 10a/b and pretty crumbly. Crux is tricky to figure out but you can camp out below it and figure out what to do. Higher up it rewards flexibility with fun stemming and a sweet, super-exposed, no-hands rest.

Comments: Not sure why the description says TR, maybe it was retrobolted? Anyway, it's 5 or 6 bolts plus a #1 C4 IIRC. The cam protects relatively easy terrain so if your mental game is there you might not need it.

Comments: Short but super fun, recommend it. With a good belayer doesn't really matter if you start from the ledge or the ground unless you think you might blow the third clip and get rubbed by the rope a bit on the way down.

Comments: I think everyone has looked at this route from above expecting it to be impossible; never knew it was this "easy". The slab isn't even the crux; the thin heady mantle is (never knew the slab didn't go to the ground either!)

Comments: Excellent 5 star splitter, one of the most enjoyable moderate cracks I've done in San Diego. Ranges from fingers to hands/wide hands.

Rack for us was 0.5, 0.75, 2, 1, 0.4, 0.3, 0.4/0.5, plus 3 or 4 draws.

Comments: The bolts on P5 are great, they give you something to clip your helmet to when you squeeze into the crack and need to get your head in!

I did P5 without clipping the bolts and used 1x #6, #5 and 2x #3, #1 and I think a #4 or a #2, don't recall which but 7 pieces in 100 or so feet made that pitch very invigorating! If you have a second #5 and/or #6 bring 'em if you want additional pro.

Comments: Fun and a bit heady! Not quite PG13, definitely want small gear. 000 didn't get used, nor did ballnuts; an offset brassy and the rest of the C3's did get used. Exited at the roof up into the finger crack.
