* All of Poway Crags and Ramona Wall are CLOSED from Dec 1st - July 31st for Golden Eagles
* Glencliff is CLOSED Dec 15th - July 31st for Golden Eagles
* Eagle Peak and Corte Madera have ADVISORIES from March 1st - July 31st for falcons and hawks. "Advisory" means that you can climb at these areas, but please minimize disturbances to raptors, and do not climb or rappel where raptors are bothered by your presence. 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: firstname.lastname@example.org with any details including specific location, behavior, nest location, etc.
* Thank you for CLIMBING RESPONSIBLY!
Pitch 1 (11b/c): Begin by climbing the route "Miss Brown" from the ground and at the top of that route head right to the "Mind Bender/Pony Express" belay. From here Mind Bender's crux pitch heads straight up from the belay.
Pitch 2 (12a): The mind bending crux begins about 10 feet above the belay at a blank looking section of rock. Solve this crux and then pull up into a corner feature. Another bazaar sequence gains a stance above the corner, where easier climbing follows an arete for about 25 feet. At this point the line traverses right across the face and into a but crack of sorts on amazing sculpted orange and brown rock...follow the wandering line and above the orange sculpted rock is a 2-bolt belay...phew!
Pitch 3 (11a): Climb up off the belay and into a stemming corner capped by a roof with an obvious finger crack. Pull a very reach and difficult crux move out of the stem to better holds on white rock. Follow easier climbing to the summit and the last 2-bolt anchor.
Recommended to approach from the left side of the wall by walking up and right from Lunch Rock past the start of Power Pod. Walk under the bottom anchor bolts and climb back up and left for the easiest path.
