Sunday afternoon...

Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Fun crack with good hands and feet. Crux is the finish. If you are tall reach high left for hold on top.

Protection 

Cams .5-1 Use small cams in horizontal crack on ledge above climb for anchor. This climb can be top roped using bolts found at the top of the rock above the finish ledge.

I climbed this on gear and felt a little silly. Should probably be treated as a high boulder problem. Reaching the bolts up top requires a committing mantle that goes much harder than 5.7, though.

I'd say 5.7 with 5.8 commitment. Move is easy, but psychologically insecure, and it is high off the deck. As with the East Flake, the crux of this climb is in a NO FALL zone, even more so than the East Flake, so if you fall from the top of this one you will be wrecked.
