Description [Suggest Change]

Another area classic! Steep, exposed climbing above the water.

There are actually 2 (or more) variations. The plumb line climbs pockets up a steep face to the right-hand side of a small roof that caps the route (5.10c). Another variation steps left at a large ledge mid-height and climbs a shallow corner before traversing back right beneath the summit cap (5.10a/b).

Location [Suggest Change]

Around to the right of the Main Face, overlooking the ocean.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Bolted top anchor

The 10's on the side are way more fun than the face climbs. Watch out for loose rocks and tourists who wander right underneath you. Oct 5, 2009

Lots of shenanigans while we were there this past week, the kind of stupid stuff we rarely see at the crags at home.

Protection is three bolted hangers for the more center version, and two bolts with hangers for the left-most route (5.10b), not listed on Mountain Project. The bolts all look kind of dodgy, and I wouldn't trust my life to them without slinging a rock with some webbing and long runner for a third/fourth piece of protection. Jun 17, 2011

Bolts have been chopped. An attached boulder is at the top of this route. Bring extra cordage/webbing. Dec 21, 2014

I brought 2 30' webbing to wrap around the boulder and there is a bolt with a long reach as well. then I equalized those two points. Some people showed up with no webbing or Static rope and had to walk away or do the easy wall which was full. Apr 15, 2015

Fresh bolts. Really fun start below first roof, then connecting back with route. Apr 5, 2017

Super fun route to climb and it's hard to beat the view. The bolted anchors were bomber and I will definitely be going back. My partner and I went in the morning on a weekday and we were the only people in the wall. Sep 13, 2017

Great climbing at the start, from the first mini-roof. It gives you a chance to do some sweet fluid movements off the ground. The climbing gets easier up until the final sequence of moves to summit wall. Chances are your anchor is extended below the lip so you'll have to climb above the anchor to try these moves, not a big deal though and definitely worth it. Apr 1, 2018
