This two-pitch climb starts left of a right facing corner near the center of the tower. Climb face past bolts, to a crack, to a belay. Face climb past horizontal cracks. Rappel 200' or walk off right.


7 bolts, gear to 2.5".

The first pitch epitomizes what a good mixed route should be. A little bit of some kitty litter/exfoliation going on, but the moves are awesome and it protects well. Fun little route in a very cool position

Although easy, the runout on the second pitch to me deserves an R due to the nature of the rock in this area.

The rappel is not one 200'er as the description implies, but two 100' raps down Tecate Crunch
