Climb the slightly overhung Eastern face of The Leaning Pillar using various different kinds of crack systems, jugs and other interesting holds.

This route is an excellent sustained workout, and offers a great view in the final top out move.


Bring a long sling (30'+) to place around the rock at the top, or you can also use the holes in the top and an additional sling.

Lots of broken glass at the base so bring a rope bag. Also, watch out for poison oak. Aside from that, this is a fantastic climb! Deceptively overhanging. Probably more like 10c if done as a true face climb (hands off the arete!) Sep 30, 2008
