Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>


Old Age climbs a fun corner with some interesting moves up steep rock about halfway up. Good rests are available before the harder sections.


This route starts on the right side of the Zombie Roof in a large left facing dihedral. Rap the route or lower off with one 60m rope.


A single set of wires and cams to a #3 Camalot. There is a two bolt anchor at the top.

Great route! Don't miss the behind-the-head hands traverse when you're chimneying on the giant detached (?? well, it's hard to see how it is attached) block.
With this in the middle, a fun tree-involved start and a slab finish, this one deserves to be a classic.
