Featured Route For Lower Ridge
Here I am making the first move on Sock Hop.  It continues pretty much straight up from here using a shallow dish or two out right and small crimps up and left.

Sock Hop V5-6 6C+  CA : Central Coast : ... : Lower Ridge
Looking at the start of this problem will make it scream for you to give it a try, and the lack of apparent holds on the upper half make it that much more interesting. Starting with good sidepulls for your hands and obvious feet, move up to the sloping ledge, and continue to the top using small crimps and shallow dishes. Great movement on solid rock make this one of the best problems around....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
