IMHO the nicest of the three face routes.Cracks and seams (small cams) lead left to a slab, climb this, it's thin past the bolt (crux), then eases at another horizontal, here you can clip the last bolt, a stare up at the anchors while wondering how the heck to get there....thin straight up, easier to the left or right....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Its worth carrying a couple of small cams for almost all the routes on the slabby face, since the bolts are fairly well spaced apart.
