Current San Diego County Advisories Details

Description

Starts as a roof as you move up and right. Pull over the roof to ultra featured face climbing. The roof is the crux and a bit dicey if you're not a solid lead climber.

Location

North side of Lowenbrau Pinnacle. Faces the lot at which you parked. Rap off top.

Protection

Well placed 6 bolts to the top. Rap anchor at finish.

Photos

Bouldery start with two bolts down low that don't really offer any protection. Easy climbing after pulling the roof. Initial move is probably 5.9 Nov 17, 2014

5.8, but the roof and decking potential make this feel harder than 5.10+ routes in the same area. Apr 29, 2012

A key hold broke off above the overhang as my friend was cleaning the route. I'm giving it a 5.7+ because his new sequence looked harder than what I was able to do. Mar 15, 2010

This route is known as "Diving Board" in the Kennedy-Hubbard guide. Great route that is far more mental than technical. Use a spotter until the leader clips the second bolt. A little hard for the grade. Mar 2, 2009

Great climb... the top is fun but relatively straight-forward 5.6ish to 5.7 climbing. I give it a 5.8 based on the tricky start, which requires precise placement, strength, and flexibility. It was nerve-racking even for our experienced climbers because the crux is early-on, with decking potential. Very much worth doing, I'd climb it again just for the enjoyment and flexibility training.

this was my first out door sport lead. The start is the crux and a little scary for a beginning climber. However I onsited it no problem. Fun little climb Nov 19, 2008
