Looking up from start of Left Longing

Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>


The first 2 bolts are fairly easy (5.7), then the next 2 bolts are more challenging (5.9) with thin feet and crimpy holds. You'll hit the last bolt and need to go left to the anchors. At this point you would need to place a piece of gear (.75 and lower cams) to protect the transfer (you would take a decent fall). Then climb through the crack and up to a set of anchors. The footing is okay. There's a notch for one foot and you can almost sit as well. Would get cramped if you belayed up another person.


It sits between The Ramp and No Burritos.


The first 40 feet has 4 bolts, then you'll need a cam to protect the transfer over into the crack towards the anchors.

The upper 60 feet (from the chains to the roof) is about 10b, and mixed gear. You can do it all in one long pitch if you bring enough gear, mostly small-med cams, plus med. nuts, and some slings for zig-zagging, as shown in Brian's Pic
