Rock Climbing Photo: Didn't climb it, couple of bolts, not sure exactly...

The Great Pretender 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b  CA : Tahquitz & Suicide Rocks : ... : Deception Pillar
This is a very good route with hard, steep, and tricky climbing on it.Climb past a couple of bolts (5.10) to the start of the steep section. There may still be doubled bolts protecting the crux if the route has not had it's bolts replaced yet. A large knob up and right is the obvious goal. A difficult sequence (12b) gets one to the knob. Be careful with the knob as it's not the most solid thing around. A strange sequence of moves (11c) is encountered at the last bolt before the belay ledge....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
