DescriptionVaried climbing through three tiers of rock on the tallest part of the wall.
The route starts with steep face climbing on positive holds (5.8+) on rock that is strangely reminiscent of San Ysidro. Upon reaching a ledge atop the first tier, the route follows blocks up and slightly right, in the direction of an obvious overhang. The route then follows positive holds up to the roof. A devilish mantel leads to easy slab-climbing.
The route ends on a wide, grassy ledge in what feels like a rocky amphitheater--the position is excellent.
The route can be rappelled with 2 ropes.
