DescriptionLocated on the back (north) side of the California Ethics Pinnacle is a short face with 2 interseting warmup routes. The north face of the CEP is broken up by a small, stubborn pine tree dead in the middle of the face. True to Tradition (aka - the Original Route) follows 2 hangers up the right side of the tree, and Tucker's Faith follows 2 different hangers on the left.
Both routes are almost identical - Tucker's Faith does grant a little more exposed feeling as it follows the arete on the NW corner of CEP. Neither is much to write home about; however, they are always in the shade and do offer outstanding views of the Shelf Road Valley below.
It should be noted that some of the Shelf Road guidebooks state that these routes are missing hangers on the bolts, etc. As of May 2002, both routes on this face have adequate fixed pro, and nothing appears to be missing.
