Jack flashing Leviathan (5.11d). photo by socalbol...

Open, with restrictions: Park on the street MORE INFO >>>


Very pumpy and popular, one of the crags greatest classics.


When facing the roof, Leviathan ends just under the roof, where it gets smaller to the left.


13 bolts to 2 cold shuts, use a long draw or skip the 3rd bolt to eliminate rope drag

I think consensus would put the rating of this in the 5.11+ range, not 5.12a. Really, Really good.

At the exit moves to the anchor, go left! The right (original?) way is very broken and will fall apart. The left way is good!
