FA: unknown
California > San Diego County > S San Diego County > Santee Boulders > Moby Dick Area > Bullet Hole Wall


Crack that goes straight up through the right side of the bullet hole wall.


Obvious crack that splits the right side of the Bullet Hole Wall.


Skill. Could lead or TR on cams as a fall from the top would hurt.

[Hide Comment] don't fall when you get close to the top. the little shelf at the bottom is a for sure ankle twister. Feb 25, 2012

[Hide Comment] I'd say the fall equates to most of the difficulty rating. If you know good jams it's mostly in your head. Sep 20, 2015

[Hide Comment] A bomber ring lock near the top makes this problem feel very 5.7 like. one of the more fun cracks at Santee imo. Aug 31, 2016

[Hide Comment] V1 if you're a boulderer who tries to lieback the whole thing, 5.7 if you just jam?

Anyway, super fun little route. Jan 22, 2019

[Hide Comment] Don't really need to hand jam it too much, the block sticking out towards the top of the crack is reachable from a good foothold. Lieback the block then beach your whale and get to the top! Feb 18, 2020
