Short well protected and fun. Crux is between 1st & 2nd bolt.


Just right of large roof - big square flake at second bolt. Rap down.

Southern CA sport climbing guide - route # 865


4 bolts to closed-shut anchors.

A tricky section down low seems to be the crux but holding on for the duration is the real crux. Dec 18, 2006

Stemming is OFF!!!! Jan 2, 2007
Sam and I had only been bolting in the area for a few weeks when Mike, Mari and Bruckman came out. We only had a dozen or so routes, mostly 11's and 12's. They asked where the 5.9 warm up was, Expresso was the easiest route bolted at the time, so I pointed to it. A little while later, they came back and stated "That thing is not 5.9!" I kinda chuckled and said, "Well... 5.9+". Expresso remained the easiest route in the area and rated 5.9+ for several years. Jan 3, 2007

Fun climb. I specifically liked how the flake was bolted into the wall. Almost got an onsight, but underestimated how pumpy it was. I fell right before the anchor :( Mar 6, 2010

Fun climb, nice hand jam rest after the crux. Oh yeah, and stemming is off (x2) despite what all the videos on YouTube show! Nov 21, 2011

Really cool layback move midway up. don't over grip everything and you can avoid the pump. Apr 1, 2013

Pumpier than it looks. Awesome bouldery sequences but I didn't have it dialed through and volunteered a fall at the fourth bolt rather than blow the clip. Well-protected though and good feet. May 20, 2013
