Description

Safety in Numbers is 1.2 miles West of the Beige Siphon Tube on Practice rock. North side of the road adjacent to the bridge. Park prior to the bridge on the south side. Looking at the right side of the rock, behind the guard rail two obvious cracks trace up the wall. Safety in Numbers is the Left slanting seam/crack on the left. Climb the seam/crack (5.10) to a good stance 8 feet off the ground. Set a couple sets of self-equalized nuts in the shallow, soft crack and hope for the best. Careful not to use up your hand holds in the seam. Continue up left of the seam using the seam and the face (5.11a), to good 5.9 edges. Continue up and left following the seam on easier ground or traverse up and right (5.7) toward the anchors above Safety in Moderation (recommended if top roping, careful with the potential swing.)

Protection

A-3 Aid or difficult to protect crack/seam. Small equalized nuts may hold a fall, wouldn't want to test that though.
