Featured Route For San Diego County
Mission Gorge Traverse 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c CA
: San Diego County
: ... : Main Wall
A very unique experience in the heart of Mision Gorge. Traverse along the top of the Main Wall. We did left to right but it probably goes well both ways. Decent hand jams in a horizontal crack that splits the entire main wall. Feet tend to be greasy as usual at the Gorge. Many awkward moves throughout the climb but no real show stoppers. The holds just open up right when you need them. Make sure to protect your second! Only follow this route if you would also feel comfortable leading it....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
