Eye of the Hurricane P1 is the crack on the right ...

Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>

Description 

P.1 Heads up a nice 5.9 crack with a little roof to navigate around. Worth doing on its own.

P.2 Heads up 5.12b on bolts to the top of the El Nino formation.

Location 

Starts at the base of the El Nino wall, in the center.

Protection 

Cams to .3-4"? and quickdraws. Haven't climbed it yet but it looks even better in real life than it does in the photo.

Wish I had the skill to climb the second pitch but the first pitch is pretty great by itself. Crack takes all bigger pieces from a BD #1 to BD #3.
