A challenging short dihedral crack leads to very balancy face climbing. During the crux move you appropriately rock onto your foot. For some however the crack is the crux. There is also a mantle thrown in there somewhere and a slab finish makes this route quite varied for its length.

The left line of bolts goes at 10b and the right line is significantly harder.


Just right of the prominent chimney at the left side of the Mission Gorge climbing area. Start up the steep dihedral crack that leads to a small ledge from which you come close to clipping your first bolt.


A cam about .5-.75 and a few bolts lead to a bolt anchor that can also be accessed by walking up left of The Blocks and traversing right above the route.

Once you reach the face, the climbing is quite balancy. I always called this route Rock On, Left and the right line Rock On, Right at 10c.

Single green C4 will protect the dihedral, and a purple C4 above the block if you want pro before the first bolt.
