This route is the steep route on the west side of the California Ethics Pinnacle (facing the trail). You have to belay on the trail.
Five bolts. Sport anchors on top.

Big holds all the way - quite a fun route.

I think there are only 5 bolts but rest assured this climb is well protected. I thought it was a very good route, requiring good technique to minimize the strenuousness of this slightly overhanging climb. The bottom cracks seemed to offer only good side pulls, thus requiring one to shift ones body position to take advantage of the hand holds. Midway, just below the bulge, we felt was the crux. My partner found a good hold further left then the line would suggest which seemed to make the route a little easier. Move right near the top and search around for a hidden hold to the right to get to the anchors. If this was longer, this route would deserve 3 stars.

One of my favorite 10s at Shelf. Monster holds the whole way.

This route reminds me of B.C. at The Bank.

This route is not a 10. Probably an 8.

Jason, you are a stud! For a mortal climber with a leading limit at 8-9 you may find this route slightly more difficult than this 8+ might suggest. Stick with the consensus grade.

Was a bit of an inside joke. Me and my partner werent sure that the climb we did was Pueblo Gringos so we asked another group if we were on the correct line because it didn't feel like it was a ten. When the guy from the other group asked my partner what it felt like, he replied "an 8". I do agree a little as I cannot see it being a legit ten.... LaCholla Jackson seems harder at 8+...oh well.

Awesome climb! Never really eases up, real pumpy. But the holds and movement are so much fun. Admittedly it's a little hard for me to grade bc the pump factor makes it seem harder, but Jason, I think you need to do more laps on La Cholla; I think that one is way easier than PG.
