Description

This great climb has a little bit of everything. It has crack climbing to laybacks to face to slab. Might be easiest to skip the bolted belay and be careful getting to the first bolt, at most 5.6.

Location

The face to the left of Hidden Slab

Protection

12 bolts + anchors

Felt the rock was excellent for Diablo. Great position with many cruxes. Jul 23, 2012

I would go ahead and reccomend the bolted belay. But that may not be your cup of tea. Either way a really fun climb. Don't get tunnel vision. It's got all you need. Oct 5, 2010

This is do-able with a 50m rope, but it sucks and requires a bit of sketchiness. 60m rope highly recommended. Really fun climbing but the rock could be better. Mar 5, 2007

Hi guys -

FA was by Rick Bradshaw, I think assisted by his wife Leslie. Probably 2000.

My favorite 10 at Diablo. Varied climbing and well protected. Crux is short section 10c. Most of climb 10a/b mostly 10a. Must do climb. Oct 8, 2006
