Description

From a large ledge clip the first bolt and move into a shallow dihederal. Continue to gain ground by stemming, avoiding crumbly flakes, until a series of edges lead up and left. From a no hands rest, enjoy a tricky but short sequence where one can use the arete, dihederal, or both. Finish by pulling a small lip with ample jugs.

In my opinion 60 Seconds Over San Manuel is both the better and more challenging route. That said the stemming near the second bolt and crux sequence on 62nd Street are worth sampling.

Location

62nd Street is the third route from the left (uphill to downhill). The route ascends the left-leaning, less-than-vertical face of a dihederal. The rock is reddish orange.

Protection

7 or 8 bolts to chain anchors.

[Hide Comment] In the guide I had written, "Don't get Suckered". I got suckered and that makes it closer to 11+. Seek the holds and the grade is correct. Jul 6, 2014
