Description 

The Right Wall receives sunlight most of the day, but may yield some relief by mid to late afternoon. Temperatures may be a few degrees higher than El Cajon, so if climbing in the summer make sure to bring plenty of water.

The rock is granite and generally good; however, due to the number of climbs and pattern of development, rock fall from other climbers necessitates wearing a helmet.


Getting There 

The approach from the road is approximately 60 to 90 minutes with an elevation gain of about 1,800 feet.

I'm Your Huckleberry 5.13b 8a 29 IX+ E7 6c  CA : San Diego County : ... : Right Wall
I'm Your Huckleberry has been called the best 5.13 in the San Diego area by some. Approach the base by climbing Bruzer Head (5.8 sport) to anchors on the roomy grassy ledge. From here continue up Crackamite (5.10d), protecting with a variety of cams from aliens to #2 Camalots. Halfway up Crackamite, head right up the steep headwall protected by bolts. The variety of moves you do to the chains is wonderful. The crux is 15 feet below the chains where you must do a powerful bouldering Gaston ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Be cautious about trusting the SD Pocket Guide. Some of the Rap Rings have been removed. I trad climbed Match Book the other day, and there were no rap rings that I could find, so I had to down climb. Maybe there's a set I missed, but I would not recommend the route unless you can see the rap rings you're going for. Otherwise it was a fun route w/ good crack for gear.

Anytime you're climbing at the local crags, it's a good idea to bring either some quicklinks and/or chain links to leave permanent rap anchors behind, or at least some webbing and rap rings. El Cajon Mountain may be missing some fixed hardware due to some chopping in the past, and Eagle Peak and Corte Madera are frequently topped out and walked-off of so rap hardware is not always present. I always bring a few sets with me and leave them on the more popular rap anchors when I go. The cheapest/simplest solution is a single quicklink and either 1 or 3 links of hardened steel chain.
