Free Lance goes up the bolt line just to the right...


This area of the rock lies to the right of The Escalator (as you might guess from the name). The climbs start from the ground and are one pitch in length. They are mostly crack routes, but with some face climbing.

Getting There 

Walk about 100 yards right from the Weeping Wall, along the base of the rock.

This is a route that you won't soon forget! Start a bit to the left of a huge, right-facing flared chimney (Hot Buttered Rump). Progressively more difficult crack and then face climbing takes you up to just above (left of) the sharp lip of the chimney. The crux involves scary and very novel barn door liebacking, using the lip for handholds. The protection (bolts) is fairly good, but a fall could involve flying over the edge. This route gets morning sun....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
