The namesake route of the area, this moderate ascends a nice hand crack in a corner to gain an airy and exposed stance. A few slippery face moves (crux) to the top finish it off. Highly Recommended.


After the trail ends, one can boulder hop to a platform overlooking the valley below. The climb comes up from below to highest point. Scramble around the whole formation to start (or rap).


TR bolt, or a couple of hand size pieces to lead. It would certainly be an R rated lead.

Great climb, and as of right now, my most favorite at Dixon. Good Exposure, definitely rated R if you choose to lead. Lots and lots of trash and graffiti. I think the amount of broken glass should up the rating of this climb. Perhaps a clean up needs to be organized....

Very fun Climb to warm up on and you can't get a better view of Escondido. Hope this helps you find and climb this route.

looks like from the video above, a bolt has been placed for the final face moves to the top.
