Access Issue: Current San Diego County Advisories Details


This is the smooth low angle face to the left of the prominent chimney/dihedral on the lower tier. Start climbing at an oak tree (probably charred stump now) on the left side and move up small left arete, moving right to a bolt. Two more bolts lead to the top.


It's bolted, but with three (still old 1/4" bolts?) in 85 feet you can't really call it sport.

Last time I was there, after the fire, the rock was quite friable and the bolts still old. Maybe we should rename this the ball bearing route. Looked too bad to give it a go. Mar 20, 2008
