Grotto and Lookout closed MORE INFO >>>


This is an ultra steep pocket climb leading to a strenuous undercling sequence just before the lip. Then a devious boulder problem guards passage to the headwall above. The hardest route in the Santa Monica Mountains.


Middle of the Kamikaze Cave.


9 bolts & 2 open shuts.
