This climb has it all. It starts with good feet and small sloping crimpers and works up and left into great finger locks in a diagonal crack but the feet disappear. Continue up onto thin face climbing with really athletic high-steps to the roof. Continue past roof to easier climbing, up and right to rap anchor.


start on the diagonal crack that jets up and left under the roof on the main wall


bolts, rap anchor

The first bolt in this climb has ripped off and needs to be replaced. Mar 13, 2017

Great climb, wish it was more than just the one pitch.

Yeah the bolts are a downer. Just don't use them. Climbing around San Diego, I see a ton of bolts right next to good pro. Jul 8, 2015

I just want to state, for the record, that I am not responsible for the bolts added to this route. I agree in full that bolts should not go where natural protection can be used. This is a great climb, none the less. May 7, 2012
Thanks Ben for taking us here! This is a great climb that starts on good crimps and delicate feet and moves through balance moves to the crux over a roof. From there it's a few small crimps to get to an easy finish and the anchors.

I definitely penciled this into the topo in my SD climbing guide book. Jan 19, 2012

I think what I have depicted here is a variation of what's in the Kennedy/Hubbard guide... which states that the climb actually starts on the face underneath the finger crack. That may be a harder option but I can assure you that the crack is a must-do. Jan 16, 2012
