Pebble Beach used to be overlooked in the whole scheme of things. It had a terrible plumb line trail. After the trail was improved it has seen a drastic increase in traffic, and rightly so. Pebble has a great concentration of 5.7-5.10 routes and most of them of the highest quality.
You should not miss classics like the 5.7 testpiece Environmental Impact, the mixed slab Central Scrutinizer, a stunning 5.9 slab or the novel Arrowhead (5.7).
Also located here is the Steve Petro line Welcome to Old Kentuck 5.13a. If you are a crack climbing hardman this is the line to repeat in the area.
The wall faces south and is a great winter destination. Get there early.
Follow FS Rd. 9 until you come to a bridge. Park near the bridge and locate a trail at the SE corner. Follow this to the wall. The first route you will see is the Arrowhead, a 5.7 face route on a short pinnacle.

Does anyone know why the sweet OW crack to the right of Ju-Ju doesn't have a name or grade? Its one of the most obvious lines at the cliff... I found it to be a fun climb and you can finish up the upper slab of Ju-Ju or the off-width finish of Zambezi Plunge to make it a full length pitch... any input or opinions?
