Bolted face climbing to thin crack. This route was first climbed in 1968 at 5.7 A1. The first ascentionists placed 13 bolts on lead to get to the upper crack system. Over many days they worked the moves and eventually removed 7 of the bolts as sections went free. It was rebolted in the early 1990's and is now the Ceremonial Rock classic. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA

Just off a trail on the right, before the way up the backside of Ceremonial, is a mossy slab with rock showing underneath. Just off vertical, with hidden, big holds between the moss, and good pro, I led up to the top, with fun moves throughout and a kool finish, 5.6; descended on the formation's north side, a boulder move or two down, and went left to get back to the base. It had been done, as old pin scars were evident.
Location was, as best as I can recall, between two formations on the backside to the top of Ceremonial...a bench may have been near the left formation, and the route on the right.
Any info, anyone?
