Welcome Home is a technical thin tips seam on textured solid rock. It is fairly sustained and requires good footwork because the tips jams are so bad.


Hike up to California Night and take a right skirting the base of the big chimney boulder. Do not drop down into the gulley with the fallen dead trees; instead, take another right ducking low under tree branches eventually emerging into a clearing with a huge chimney blocking your way. Jump across the chimney and walk across the flat rock platform. Welcome Home is in the corridor straight ahead with the bolt at your feet.


One bomber bolt and a medium nut for backup.

Kyle, you should get on American Gypsy! super good. Fade to Black is also pretty fun. May 7, 2013
Great route. I got a little lost finding it, as I tried to stay at the same elevation as the chimney boulder. It is actually below that rock, and fairly close, within 100 yards at the most. Definitely worth finding. May 3, 2013
