Fornication

5.9, TR, 35 ft (11 m),  Avg: 1 from 1 vote
FA: unknown
California > Los Angeles Basin > Beaches > Laguna Beach > Temple Rock

Description

Sandy slab start follows  holds left and up to fragile but more featured middle crux section.  Angle and difficulty drops back to featured top out.

Location

Roughly follows ropeline after dropping rope from double bolt anchor with inadequate third bolt.

Protection

Questionable (or worse) bolted anchor, but passive pro in crack constrictions around the area necessary as back up. (Long webbing or static cordage recommended.) Due to soft rock, take extra care.
