Sometimes things get tougher when you only have on...


On the West (Oceanside) face, this is the route under the lower and diagonally facing roof in the center of the wall that has bolts on the roof.

Climb to and then use the crack under the roof using all the feet you can find, hanging on to the overhung rock.

Climbing is pumpy, and there are two cruxes, clipping the third bolt and clipping the top anchors.

Also note that the 'bad bolts' that older books refer to have been replaced. The new ones work great.


5 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor.

Fun route, with good movement (super cool drop knee's). Clipping the chains is a bit tricky. Watch out for crabs!
