Thin jams and a bit of liebacking up a smooth, thin crack characterize the start which protects well with wires and small cams. Higher the crack ends and turns to face climbing past a bolt which protects to the top. Rap from anchors on the ledge above with one rope. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in California

Does anyone know anything about the two bolted slab routes between "Hemroidic Terror" and "Rings Around Uranus"? They seem to be in the mid 5.10 range. The left route has 2 bolts and the right has 3. The left route is a bit contrived and seems to have an easier variation skipping the second bolt and climbing straight up past the first bolt. The right route felt slightly harder than either variation on the left route.
