It's a face climb.


Powerhouse wall, on the pillar to the left of One Sock Bandit.


4 bolts with anchors at top.

I think 'LA is burning' is the climb up the hill and around the corner (steel cables running underneath the first bolt) from 'Alex Rocks' - the pic shown here appears to be of 'Alex Rocks'

The anchor on top is 2 bolts with chains, connected with a single quick link. Why? It's a fun face climb, give it some love and add another quick link... Feb 19, 2018

Hmmmm...Interesting. When I posted this, this was my first time here and I was just going off of what my friends told me and what the book described as the climb. Could be Alex Rocks. Sorry for the confusion. I'll take out the photo. But it is on Powerhouse Wall as the far left climb according to the book. Feb 20, 2018
