Climbing in Billy Land. Gene St Dennis on the firs...

Description 

A slightly runout trad route that has effectively been replaced by newer bolted routes to either side of it.

Start in a thin seam that turns into a shallow crack with a bush. The start is the same for CA Love, but where CA Love moves left onto the bolted face, continue strait up. Eventually the crack ends and the route wanders up looking for places to put in small gear until you get to a ledge with a two bolt anchor. You can belay here, or continue up a right facing corner to the top. Essentially the same finish as The Chronic.

Stout for the grade compared to other routes on this wall.

Location 

Between California Love and the Chronic. Pretty much dead center of the Gangsta Wall

Protection 

mainly small gear
