BETA PHOTO: crack. .10-ish. Lowenbrau Pinnacle north face.

Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The only info on this route is the Lowenbrau topo, which simply calls it "crack". This is the splitter crack going up the wall on the inside of the cave, about 30 feet left of Right Under.
Scramble up a block, set one or two micro-nuts, then crank up the tips crack to a thin hands section followed by twenty feet of beautiful ring-locks.
Strangely absent from the climbing guide, this short climb is one of the best pure cracks in the county.

Location 

Located about 30 feet left of Left Under, inside the cave.
Climb out the cave and rap down the outside face.

Protection 

Small to micro nuts to start, then three to four cams in the 0.5 range.
