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.

Comments: This route is rad! Prob between 11b and c depending on your height, wingspan, and strengths. Several variations of holds and sequences to make the first crux, two completely different styles of doing the second crux that follows (I could only do one, my partner the other). Definitely a fun route to spend some time on.

Comments: I pulled off a couple of big chunks and lots of scree from the right side of the middle of the climb and 'X'ed a bunch of big rock chunks that are still there. They look/feel pretty rotten and will eventually pull off if yarded or stood on. Wouldn't be a huge deal except the belayers for this and Fantasia don't really have anywhere to go if a hundred pounds of rock come crashing down. BETA WARNING: you don't need to touch the 'X'ed sections to do this climb in the most efficient fashion.

Comments: If you find the right mantle sequence for your height, the mantle ends up feeling physically easier than the moves leading up to it.

Comments: For anyone planning on War Paint (5P 12a), a key hold broke off the start of the 3rd pitch (12a crux). It's likely now hard twelve at least and impossible to french free it (the first bolt is about 12 feet up or so.) Those inclined can skip the start by going up the 5.easy gully to the right and clipping the first bolt and swinging back in to do the super fun original crux.

Comments: Really fun route with a bunch of nice cracks from fingers to fists! P4 and 5 can be linked with a 60m with maybe 10-15 feet to spare for a slightly more challenging ending. We used about 13 draws; this climb is nicely bolted.
