Nearing the funky crux of Choss Temple Pilots.


This is a fun route with lots of big holds, interesting crack-type features and nice morning sun on colder days. It climbs the aesthetic brown wall beneath the immense roof on the left side of the Bauhaus Wall and is accessed by scrambling up a steep slope on your left when you first approach the wall.

There are five routes on this wall, two 5.12s out right in the blue/grey rock and the three 5.11s out left near the bouldering cave. This is the rightmost of the trio of 5.11's and ends at an anchor beneath the deep V in the upper roof band.

Climb up past a rectangular hole, move right on slopers, then realm up the consistently steep rock above, milking the occasional rest before another 5.10/10+ type-sequence hits you in the finishing corner.

This is very cool climbing.


10-12 quickdraws.

There is a bit of a run out in the middle 3rd. Just fair warning to those breaking into the grade.

Good fun but greasy feet. Better on a cool day.
