Thin and balancy, Pocket Pool is tough and sustained for the grade. Good footwork comes in handy.

Climb the steep face on crimps and the occasional big pocket to the top.


Red Light District; near the left end of the section, just right of Jacob's Ladder.


Five bolts; closed shuts for anchors.

The shuts are now replaced with two bolts with rap rings.

As of this weekend, there's a hornets nest on the vegetative ledge to the right between the 2nd and 3rd bolt.
