Last jam before the topout

Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>


This is a roadside favorite. As the name suggests, its a meaty little crack. It is on the left side of the road on orange colored rock, just before Poison Oak Crack. The blasted boulders before it, also on the left hand side of the road are fun bouldering also.

Bring gloves if you even plan on LOOKING at this thing. Very "meaty" as stated above.

Not as bad as some would imply, i thought. Maybe cause I'm tall and I only need to jam about twice to hit the top.

Woe to those who climb this on a hot day when your hands are sweaty. I overjammed and hamburgered my hands. I've since gotten better.
