Sin is a long pitch of great climbing. A 70m rope is required, though you can lower to the East of Eden anchors and reportedly get down from there with a 60m.

P1. 5.10d. Turn a roof at the first bolt, then face climb to a mantel onto a ledge. At the second bolt above the ledge, move right out of the crack to stay on the best climbing, and continue to the anchors.


This is ten feet right of East of Eden.


Fourteen bolts to chains.

Don't let the early weird roof moves discourage you! Great face climb once you pull the roof!
