Monkey Crack. Note the very overhanging start.
Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>


Short crack with a very overhanging start and a big reach. Tape gloves are helpful with the upper off-hands section. You will have a lot of weight on your arms on this one.


On a rock just past the Big Grunt chimney, on the left side of the road. Can be seen from the road. To set a TR continue past it up the next switchback and walk on top.


Small to medium cams and a medium nut to lead. Can be top roped with medium cams. I have to admit to bailing on my lead so look at it and take what looks good to you.
