One of my favorite routes in the Potrero. Especially fun as there's not really a crux, just steady, in your face climbing the whole way.


Starts about 25' right of El Camino del Diablo. Climb to the same ledge as ECdD and move right to the start.


12 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

Felt hard for the grade, or I'm not sufficiently used to the resistance style. Very sustained climbing that wouldn't feel out of place at the Gold Coast in the Red River Gorge.

That's an awesome perspective. I thought Hombre de Rifle was 12+, 2nd try easily. I see you did Surfer Rosa 2nd try and I sort of thought that route was harder than 13a. Solid climbing all around man.
