  • Climbing Banned MORE INFO >>>
  • Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    Follow a line of bolts that angle right then up white rock with pockets make a hard move left from a mono pocket to gain a small stalactite that joins up with the larger one above. After a rest the route continues up easier but steep terrain to the top. This route is so steep you will need to back clip into the fixed slings when you lower or you will not make it back to the ledge!

    Location 

    A massive stalactite with a tree growing out of the top divides this wall in the middle. Finger Bang climbs up the left side of this formation

    Protection 

    Titanium and Fixe Marine grade bolts
