Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Climb a rib of rock through a roof. It seems unlikely however the rib provides the holds you will need.


Location 

At the top of the left climbers' approach trail. Left of General Dynamics (bolted) and right of Lilley's Delight (easy crack).


Protection 

TR. Easiest way to set up is to lead Lilley's delight (5.7 hand crack) and head right to the bolted anchor.
