Description Suggest change

San Diego aid testpiece. Most likely the hardest aid line in the county. Lead as A5 in the 60's but was lead hammerless and solo in 1976 by Alan Nelson. The only solid placements are in the first ten feet. Many tenuous hooking moves remain to the top. Very much a solo if attempted to be lead due to the fact that nothing would hold a fall after the first two placements. Lots of fun though to top rope this one and show off your hooking skills!

Location Suggest change

5 feet to the left of Master of Defeet

Protection Suggest change

Small wires, small hooks, small beaks, and 1 grey C3 placement. There are also two very old bolts but proper hooking can see you around using these.
