Eliot Carlsen on Moroccan Menace.

Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>


A single feature dominates this seemingly blank face.

Start directly beneath the described feature. Delicate moves will take you upwards until the arete can be reached out left. Stay on the face as you make additional progress directly upwards, eventually moving around the arete much closer to the top.


Exit the road to the left just before reaching the water tower. Follow the trail as it trends left, away from the fence.


Pad - flat landing.

KP's Demise is actually on the boulder to the left of this very good problem. The above problem is "Moroccan Menace."

Moroccan menace climbs the face only until the arete can be reached, then it is a burly rounded lieback to the top. If people are climbing straight up the face without using the steep, bald arete on the left, it should have a name because that would be a different problem.

I was with Greg Epperson when he did the FA, and I did the first repeat, sometime in the early-mid 80s.
