Current San Diego County Advisories Details

Description

This route mimics Lemon Chiffon, but at the next number grade up. Trusting in your shoes aided by a few digit holds will get one up this seam to face route.

Location

The last left-swinging switchback before the summit lies this route on the left hand side of the road.

Protection

TR bolts

Your right about condition dependent. You want it to be in the 50's. Great climb for the solo track circuit. Has anyone ever done it without a rope? So hard to rate this angle. Feels desperate until you work out the right sequence, then, when you do, and the condition is right, it feels easy. Classic Woodson! Feb 13, 2017

It's just high enough to introduce a broken ankle into the equation if you fall from the top. I've seen it shut down many, many climbers who know how to climb hard granite slabs. Conditions have to be perfect -- cool, sunny, low humidity -- like super sunny day right after a rainy cold front has blown through. I've only seen it done two or three times. Epi, Darrel, and this other guy I know. It's a beautiful route if you like that kinda stuff. An honest 12c. Jan 19, 2017

Surprisingly low angle, but fun technical slab moves lead up the seam before it peters out and then what... friction dyno to the summit? I'd like to see someone do this static. Make sure you have a lot of rubber Apr 24, 2016

No such thing as "tight rope dependent!" But I agree the last couple of moves were a hope and a prayer for me... Feb 15, 2013

It is temperature and tight-rope dependant. Feb 15, 2013
