Climbers on the 2nd pitch.


This is a good pitch with two well-protected 5.10 cruxes, both involving high-steps to reach good jams. Tape advised. This also makes a good, easier way to reach the fun 5.9 slabbing ofA Long December's second pitch. There is a second pitch of Caesar's, but we didn't do it.


This is the obvious crack line about 25 feet left of A Long December, generally following left-facing corners on the first pitch.


Wires and set of cams up to #3 Camalot size. Nice but not at all necessary to have doubles in hand size.

This route is named after my sometimes partner's dog, Caesar. This dog accompanied us pretty much whenever we climbed, and the most annoying thing about him (Doberman) was that he loved to clean ears. I always arrived at the crags with absolutely no wax to be found in my ears, and I think he even cleaned my brainstem a couple of times.

Very nice climb, but gave it a 10a because crux has a second crack on right and the horn on the left. You probably will not need to tape.

Both pitches of Ceasar's are great. We didn't use tape.

This climb is almost a pure crack gem. Steep.

The first crux on this seemed to be in the first 20'. You can use a #4 C4 to protect this move.
