Good route, but grainy. I don't know what the photo's all about.Down and to the right of Pie Face are three cracks. These are to the left of True Grip.Climb the right-hand crack, a bolt protects face moves to a chimney/offwidth. Follow this to a belay. Most folks rap from here, or there is an interesting down climb off the back side.The seldom done second pitch, goes up and right to a chimney. Climb this until it is possible to move left onto a face, which is followed to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
