Dave's Deviation 5.9 CA : Tahquitz & Suicide Rocks : ... : West Face - Left Side
This route starts just right of The Jam Crack. Pitch 1 (5.9) is a very nice, clean finger and thin hands crack. Pitch 2 (5.9) starts at the left end of the Pitch 1 belay ledge.

The route finishes at Pine Tree Ledge. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
