Action shot.


The crux is up high.

Per Thomas Cuthbert: this is an awesome route high up above the train tracks. It has a sweet overhang with the crux at the top. There is a little bit of guano on one of the holds though.


It is on the pillar above the second tunnel (just south from Chocolate Tower). Park on CR-371 just before the first tunnel and walk around on the track side.

Per Thomas Cuthbert: you can see the rock poking out when approaching the tunnels, there is a path leading to the route from the left of the road.


6 bolts and 2 single ring anchors.

If you got the reach, the crux is not as bad, just be ready to whale flop your way over the anchor.
