War for the Sit

V5, Boulder, 8 ft,  Avg: 2 from 1 vote
FA: Milo Shumpert
California > Los Angeles Basin > Santa Ana Mount… > El Cariso > El Cariso - Misc Problems
Access Issue: Access Sensitive Details

Description

Sit start on the diagonal crimp flake, bust up to a nice sized comfy crimp, and work your way up and left via slopers to a amazing chicken head. The grade is height dependent, the taller you are the tougher it gets. Start on the comfy crimp if the scrunched sit kicks your butt at V3 or so, its a great problem from there.

Location

Hike to the grumpy man boulder, from there go a bit further to the fork in the trail, go left from here towards the Pizza Face boulder. As your passing the left side of Pizza face, you will see the War boulder to the left about 10', in between some trees and bushes.

Protection

1-2 Pads

Milo sticking the first move. He cruised it, but for the average height (over 5') this move is a grunt!

Start on the crimp flake and work up and left. Going right is a separate more chossy finish to the problem (V4?).

[Hide Comment] Seems like we where the first to climb this based on some chunks that cleaned off nicely, but if you did this in years past and named it message me and I'll be happy to revise. Jan 13, 2016
