Description

I’ve always passed this line thinking, “this is the most obvious line on Fireplace Rock, why isn’t it popular/on mountain project?” Then I climbed it.

Holy SAND. I’m convinced that all of the sand in the muscle beach area originated from the horizontal crack on this climb. The theoretical crux is the opening side pulls to get established into the crack, but the actual crux is dealing with all of the sand. 

Resources online say that the chimney top out is optional, but have you really sent it if you didn’t top out? I’m convinced that this one could gain a star if it saw more traffic, the traverse is pumpy and fun, and the chimney is committing. 

Location

Stand start on a side pull, then crank to another side pull directly above that’s just to the left of the obvious horizontal crack. Traverse the entire crack then top out through the giant offwidth chimney. 

Protection

Pad/spotter. Pressure washer if you have one.
