Description

The route climbs an extremely obvious corner/flake/offwidth. The crux occurs roughly 80' into the first pitch while traversing left where the crack opens wide. There is a roughly 15' runout while lieback/underlinging the crack, and the feet get a little mossy. When the crack pinches down to hands, the feet get even worse but at least this is trivially protected. This is possibly the best trad pitch at Corte Madera! The 2nd pitch is relatively trivial climbing in the 5.6-6.8 range. The $ pitch is the first!

Location

The route is on the right side of the main wall. It is one of the most obvious features on the entire massive wall. It can be seen from above, before rappelling, if you look down from the right spot. Approaching from above, trend down and climber's left past the route, then cut back down a ramp to rappel anchors above the route. The Allied Climbers of San Diego have put together the Pocket Guide to San Diego Climbing that should help find the route.

Protection

There is one bolt, and the rest of the gear on the first pitch is medium to large. The next pitch is mostly small to medium.
