DescriptionThis route is pretty rad. The rock quality is superb! It's like climbing at Tahquitz back in the day, as there are some loose rocks, but nothing's gonna kill ya (unless you're stupid).
The route starts up a cool slanting crack on the southwest side of the formation. It traverses left for about 100ft or so best guess to a sort of a ledge above that really neat looking pine tree. It's smart to belay from here so communication isn't tiring. Next pitch goes up these two cool finger cracks to some really good holds and lower-angle terrain. It's a cool ridge scramble from there. Belay is best closest to the hillside, so the second can walk off easy.
This route was a lot of fun. Can't always say that about other San Gabe first whatevers.
