Rock Climbing Photo: Pulling into the crux on Arrogant Bastard.

Arrogant Bastard 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c  CA : San Bernardino Mountains : ... : Stone Wall
Boulder up onto a small ledge, clip a bolt and then climb thin face up to a huge, hanging flake which is liebacked up the overhanging face. The crux comes above the flake, where a tricky sequence on smallish holds gains a jug and somewhat easier climbing. Stays interesting all the way to the anchors, especially if pumped.For the grade as good as any route at the Pinnacles, with steep climbing on good holds and fun moves throughtout. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
