Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>


Climb left variation start to Knob Job, instead of stepping right at roof to mantle the Knob. Pull the roof directly via excellent side pulls and under clings, to a wicked left side pull flake/horn, to mantle!


Located just left of Knob Job.


When top roping use large oak tree as your anchor. Use left bolt of Knob Job Anchor to clip 48" directional to climbers end, to prevent Ugly Dangerous swing over into 4th class ramp.

Pretty sure there are still no bolts for this anchor at least as of 6/14/14.
Nor does it need them with such good natural anchor options. Have fun and be Safe :)

Pretty sure this route has it's own anchor now and you don't need to use the oak tree mentioned in the description.
