This route is on the SW face, left of the big roof there is a rotten "looking" section of rock with mineral residue from the aquaduct. Two new routes climb this rock, this is the right-most. This looks rotten but is solid, with nice crimpers and a nice angle. This is a pumping climb that works a couple of small roofs. Nice line.


2 draws for the chains atop the cliff. Plus 5?? draws for the bolts on the way up. Maybe a small selection of medium nuts to protect the inital moves

Used a red friend and a large nut to protect the initial moves. That first bolt is a ways up there. It's easy climbing climbing to the first bolt, but I had the gear so why not. The crux is right after the second bolt.

Very interesting route. Not sure what to think about it yet, it's still simmering... You may want to bring some sm/med gear for getting up to the last bolt as well... I don't know, maybe it was just the pump talkin'...

There are now three new sport routes that climb this area. This would be the middle line.

I climbed this last week for the first time. Some medium sized gear for the moves to the last bolt would have beed good. I had a bit of a pump, and felt run out. Maybe it was just me and a new season. The initial moves were not hard, I clipped the first bolt on the 10a to the right.
