A great lesson in difficult smearing. Highly recommended.

I'm 5'8" and I have to do 3 extra moves in the beginning compared to my 6'2" climbing partner. What an awesome balancey technical face climb! Great must do for santee!

Like lots of Santee climbs very weather dependent!

Was surprised at how small the black spot is. Left variation, just get to the two good high crimps and high step, fun

One of my favorite San Diego climbs. It can be a little frustrating when you are slipping off, but keep at it, the falls are safe. It is weather dependent, but it can be done on hot and cold days.

Once you get it, try getting it clean, both ways, multiple times. Then you are a true smear master. *bows head respectfully*
