Description 

The Left Wall receives sunlight most of the day, but may be slightly cooler during the mid-morning hours. Temperatures may be a few degrees higher than El Cajon, so if climbing in the summer make sure to bring plenty of water.

The rock is granite and generally good; however, due to the number of climbs and pattern of development, rock fall from other climbers necessitates wearing a helmet.

Getting There 

The approach from the road is approximately 60 to 90 minutes with an elevation gain of about 1,800 feet.

Meteor 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  CA : San Diego County : ... : Left Wall
Awesome route, First 3 bolts are the start of leonids, then wanders off to the right up toward the tower. Has two hard moves at the top of Pitch 1. Traverse right onto Triton Tower. Then climb an exposed arete up, then back on to the left face. Tops out on the top of the tower then make a traverse left on to the platform....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
