The Pseudomania area is the relatively small crag just down and left from Upper Gibraltar. It hosts three steep and powerful lines through rock of decent quality. None of the climbs look like they get much traffic, despite offering aesthetic moves at a very scenic locale.
Approaching from the bottom is probably possible, but not recommended. It's best to take the fairly obvious trial along the ridge that Upper Gibraltar tops out on, but just before reaching the leftmost prow of U.G., take a hard right through a brush-tunnel/trail to the outcroppings which mark the top of the routes. The left outcropping is the top of Try Something New, the right one is the for the pair of 5.11s. Rap in from there to gain access to a comfy ledge system.

It would warrant more stars were it longer (and if I didn't get bit like mad by the mean-spirited ants at the bottom.)...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
