There are a number of different variations, all of which climb the large face left of "The Ladder" and right of "Klingon."

As a lead, the route is seriously runout. Most climbers simply top-rope the route off of two bolts and a solid nut at the top of the route.

This route is very sustained and provides a great introduction to Central Coast sandstone slab climbing. Run laps in order to acclimate yourself to the surface.


Gear to 3", though only an occasional placement.

The top anchor consists of two 3/8" Rawl expansion bolts backed up with a solid nut.

This is the place of choice to give your friends a climbing experience in SB. No leading for you with questionable belayers, good anchor options, and exposure with a view.

Be prepared for classes on the weekends.
