This is a really fun new route. It has a different feel than the other routes in LAX. A must do.

I have to agree. This is an amazingly fun route, with solid rock and really excellent movement. An instant Lax classic.

A bat flew out of one of the cracks at the top as I climbed by. Watch out for wild animals on this one.

It looks like there is a line to the left and to the right of the bolts. Left line was fun lay backs and felt like 10c. Haven't climbed right yet but it looks fun as well.

Get on this route! It is so much fun and tests your overhung climbing skills. One of my personal favorites of the area.
