Description

Warp Riders is a fun 120’ pitch of increasingly difficult climbing straight up the middle of the upper S. face of the Rincon Wall. Good position and fun climbing abounds.

The first ascent began at the tree belay atop Another Pipe Line Bone Crusher, but the preferred approach is via Spicoli (5.11), at the those anchors continue with moderate climbing 30’ to the tree belay. Climb the low angle crack till it peters out into vertical 5.9, then to a black and maroon dike-crack splitting the upper face R to L. Follow this crack ~30’ to a stance then over a bulge onto the green face above. Trend up and R toward the orange/maroon dihedral roof below the apex of the face (crux) exiting onto the summit slabs accessing the ridge where natural anchors can be found.

Location

Location: S. face of Rincon, starting at the tree atop Another Pipeline Bonecrusher. Climb Spicoli (5.11; or Another Pipeline Bonecrusher or Tsunami) or follow a convoluted traverse across the face from the R along the ridge near the beginning of Gambit (not recommended).

Protection

Gear: Eldo SR with extra small -1” cams, a 3.5-4” piece could be useful but unnecessary.
