This is zoomed,,, I kept as respectful a distance as possible by hanging off the bolts to belay my 2nd, but still got dive bombed by seriously pissed off gulls the whole time I was up there.

Nearing the 1st bolt on the Regular route. Chest deep with a 1' tide to get on it.

Comments: I've climbed this using only the crack and also by stemming over to M & Ms Peanut. I thought the stemming was a bit easier, but made it more interesting and memorable.

Comments: If you run across the ledge real fast, jump into the upper crack section, and forget the ledge ever happened, this is a great jam!

Comments: Have to disagree about the rock being shit. Choss pile? C'mon guys. Was not that dirty either, especially considering the context.

Real fun excursion!! Went at probably 1' tide level or so and was up to my waist and then some. I had alpine draws with me and slung something before the first bolt, but the climbing is easier than it looks and super cruiser.

I didn't pull onto the top due to a nest full of baby seagulls. I was getting heavily dive bombed by seriously pissed off gul... more >>

Comments: The start got my attention, but it seemed to ease from there. The flakes were a bit suspect, but not super scary or anything. I can understand them being more disconcerting on a solo. I just tossed my rope at the top of the crack and ran the belay strand over that to avoid it getting sucked down. Worthwhile tick.

Comments: If you climb this with some finesse, I think it's more in line with the grade. I thought it was great fun.

Comments: Somewhat awkward start leads to a short steep section, some fun jams throughout. Worthwhile.

Comments: Protects pretty easily & well with small gear. Looks a bit sketch from the ground. A few fully fun moves, but too short. Tres Fun (p2 .10a above) is worth going up for if you're in the area.

Comments: Worthwhile if you are climbing in the area, lots of sun. Turning over the roof is fun.

Comments: Memorable climbing. I didn't want to fall above that over hang. Gear was somewhat sobering, but more than adequate.

Comments: A few years ago on a real cold January day I decided to warm up on this route. I casually headed into the chimney and desperate 5.10b seems about right. I'm sure there have been many unsuspecting victims over the years. Made for a memorable climb! Glad I got suckered in.

Comments: I have wanted to get on this for a while. Seeing someone on the top slab is pretty crazy looking from Park Road! Pretty awesome. Get yo' chimney on.
Crazy wind up top :/
Chimney is the crux.

Figure out a belay from inside the pit to avoid buffeting on a windy day. Starts and ends memorably.

Comments: Not a bad route by any means. It was pretty clean, at least I didn't notice much. Nice place to get away, wander around and get on random routes.

Comments: I was relatively awkward on my first time leading this, the second time I managed to smooth it out. Two stars, but a must-do one day walking out of the wonderland.

I remember the second pitch being a bit creepy with small gear behind a big hollow flake. Interesting climbing though.

Comments: Not to be missed. It's right there, but it seems overlooked. Would be a fun outing to hit up Illusion Dweller & Ball Bearing along with it. It is indeed sharp, but makes for solid jams. 10a is fair and a good audience can be fun sometimes.
