Description 

The Tombstone Pit is a small, somewhat enclosed area that is home to seven routes which are found on the on the north and south faces of some small "pinnacles". Routes range from 5.7 - 5.10d with most being in the 5.10 range.

This may help in visualizing the routes here as well - the anchors for the route Better Luck Next Time (5.10d) are actually located on the other side of the block with Firepower (5.10d).


Getting There 

The Tombstone Pit is located slightly southheast of the the Claim Jumper Wall, and approched by either walking along the base of Skyy Slab or by scrambling up from the eastern end of the Claimjumper Wall (easier without packs).

A fun route which takes the line up the center of the face using an undercling then thin edges and lieback flakes, the crux is moving right and onto the rest ledge one bolt from the top. The opening moves up to the high first bolt are worrying, there's a good small Friend placement in a slot though before the undercling flake. The crux section also feels a tad runout....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
