Description

This is a good pitch with two well-protected 5.10 cruxes, both involving high-steps to reach good jams. Tape advised. This also makes a good, easier way to reach the fun 5.9 slabbing ofA Long December's second pitch. There is a second pitch of Caesar's, but we didn't do it.

Location

This is the obvious crack line about 25 feet left of A Long December, generally following left-facing corners on the first pitch.

Protection

Wires and set of cams up to #3 Camalot size. Nice but not at all necessary to have doubles in hand size.

The first crux on this seemed to be in the first 20'. You can use a #4 C4 to protect this move. Jan 18, 2014

This climb is almost a pure crack gem. Steep. Nov 6, 2011
Both pitches of Ceasar's are great. We didn't use tape. Sep 6, 2011

Very nice climb, but gave it a 10a because crux has a second crack on right and the horn on the left. You probably will not need to tape. Dec 6, 2010

This route is named after my sometimes partner's dog, Caesar. This dog accompanied us pretty much whenever we climbed, and the most annoying thing about him (Doberman) was that he loved to clean ears. I always arrived at the crags with absolutely no wax to be found in my ears, and I think he even cleaned my brainstem a couple of times.
FA: George Watson, Steve Brodhead, late '80s though it may have been done earlier by some other party. Jul 9, 2010
