Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Pull past a large bulge/roof right of a bolt (crux #1). Head up and left to a crack in a dihedral. The crack thins down and provides crux #2, leading to easier climbing above. The climb is pretty physical and seems to really get your whole body involved at the cruxes.


Location 

Far right side. Head up and right from the top of the right approch trail. Scrabmle up to a ledge where you will see the lone bolt on a bulge. This can be easily TRd off the bolts and it is advised to use a .5-1" piece as a directional at the top of the crack.


Protection 

1 bolt and small to 1" gear to a 3 bolt anchor. If you want protection before the bolt bring a #3 or #4 and a medium to long sling.
