At the far west end of the Waterfront, just past the chockstone are 3 bolted lines, this is the west-most. The 1st bolt, on waterstreaked rock, leads up and right to a footledge. Then climb the dihedral/groove system, to the headwall. Climb this and finish on easy chicken-heads. Thin pro from the bolt to the chickenheads. Not the best of lines, but it definitely had some interesting moves down low and gaining the headwall.


1 bolt on the route, and a small selection of small gear for the crack, with a 1" cam for the top,a nd some extra slings to loop chickenheads.

Climbed the best line in the Tijuana area. Suggest removing the single bolt on the left. Two bolts to headwall and chains is 5.9, nice variety of climbing.
