BETA PHOTO: Mighty Monger. 5.9 bailout finish to the right
Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>


Sport climb just left of The Rift. Blocky slick ground leads to a few cruxy lieback and other moves to top out. Can bail to the right at the top if the crux is proving too difficult.

Bolted protection. Bolt anchor. Best to walk off climbers' left.

Mighty monger. Follow the bolt line to the right of the rope. The bail out to the right after the third bolt is unknown monger i believe rated 5.9

I have seen the "bail out" referred to as "Unknown Monger" 5.9 in a few reference guides.

Did this climb on Saturday, fun and very awk first half.

the top feels a little stiff for 10d

Fun start - to be honest, I placed a little micro cam before the first bolt b/c I didn't want to to roll down the hill if gravity took over. Difficult at the top...very reachy for me...or dyno?? Drawback: it is one of those routes that makes you ask "is this hold on?" other words the big crack/arete to the right are within easy reach most of the time. Stick to the bolt line - as the route is intended - and it's tough and sporty. I thought it was harder than 10d near the last bolt, but maybe I missed the move....

TRed this once then second time I lead this as my first lead ever. Stupid idea.

Always have used the bail out on the right. I would agree its a 5.9 if you bail.

There's a big jug at the very top that is hard to see from below. Hit that and the top out is money.
