Perhaps the best route on the face, this climbs clean cracks in the upper face right of Out of Sight.
Start up either Community Service or Keep Hope Alive as an approach pitch, clip the anchors and then climb either side of the diamond-shaped block (5.10) to finish up face past a bolt.
Mistakenly rated 5.11a in previous guides, this is nowhere near that difficult and is a highly recommended route of the area.
Gear to 2", bolt, 2 bolt anchor on top (walk off)
Just below the bolt and the top on El Rayo (5.10b)...

Mistakenly listed as a TR (and rated 5.10d) in the new Big Bear guidebook, but don't be fooled as this thing eats gear and is one of the better lines, trad or sport, at this crag.
