Higher up near the top of the "Mullah". ...


The right of two roof climbs following the 15' roof near the middle of California Ridge. Solid huecos get you up and over the roof. Easy, runout face climbing to ledge where you can clip a bolt and join Case Dismissed for a couple .10a face moves to the finish.

Two bolt anchor


Left/Middle of California Ridge. The right of two routes following the hueco covered roof 15' off the deck. Between Ayatollah on left and the offwidth, Case Dismissed on the right.

Some overhang to start and immediate exposure to the left make this an interesting psychological exercise but the assortment of jugs and features calm the nerves. Some of the features feel especially thin on this route so take care. A few reachy moves make this a 10a. Taller climbers should find this climb a grade easier. Well protected.

Fun route. I thought the crux was fairly tricky and at the 3rd bolt, not at the top. The "5.10a" face moves near the anchors were noticeably easier than the moves at the 3rd bolt.
