Please leave the area and climb or rappel elsewhere if the raptors are agitated.
* The Allied Climbers of San Diego are actively working with land managers to manage raptors who change nest location and need your help! If you see raptors or active nests at our crags, especially if they are agitated by climber presence, please email them at: email@example.com with any details including specific location, behavior, nest location, etc.
* Thank you for CLIMBING RESPONSIBLY!
The bottomless left arete is the obvious objective, and therein lies the problem, getting to the arete. Start a couple feet left of Slap You Silly. A hard pull on sharp crimps gives access to a left traverse across the face on patina edges. From the large foot edge at the end of the traverse move up, then left to the obvious stance at the base of the arete. From here one can finally do the stellar arete.
Long problem with sustained moves, feels more like a route than a bouldering problem. The real problem isn't so much individual move difficulty as much as linking everything together. The sharp holds have a tendancy to chew one up after a few tries.
The arete is superb. To just do it by itself (maybe 12a), it's well worth pulling up past the edging to the stance at the base of it and going from there.
You kind of had to have been involved in the Woodson/Rubidoux skirmishes during the late 70's - early 90's to understand the name.
