A three bolt variation off of "Exit Stage Right." Climb the latter route to the first bolt, then traverse left past the crux (a brief section of dark, thin and slightly crumbly rock) to a bolt. Continue up past 2 more bolts to the upper level on excellent steep friction with great clipping stances. From the 3rd new bolt, head slightly right to an inset rock/stance. Continue up slab to a false summit. An ancient 1/4" bolt will be at the top of the slab near the base of another vertical wall. Climb the face above to the left and belay from natural anchors under a summit boulder.

The name bemoans the closing of Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena, CA. A world-class concert hall where I was the art director at the time.


Decent is a walkoff to the south, downclimbing a gully to a small tree. Rappel 80' from tree to ground.


5 quickdraws
#1-3 Camalot for anchor

Sorry, but route was put in from the ground up. I had to climb there to place the bolt off of hooks. Sometimes optimal placement isn't possible due to ethics of the day.

And no way this route has an "R" rating. Oct 25, 2011
