Side pull clip on Song of Stone

Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>


Probably the best route on the wall. While the book refers to this as a sustained crack, most of the climbing is face climbing. Still, crux jams may make this a lot easier if you know how.


This is the 3rd bolt line on the wall from the left side.


6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. The crux is well protected by the second to last bolt.

Has anyone ever led this on gear? Although I'm grateful for this route being bolted, I wish I had brought my rack for this route... but on the other hand hauling a trad rack overseas for just this route would have been futile.

Definitely easier for me since I like crack. Still, the crack up high on the route is harder to jam cause it gets wider and has thin lips; pull on the edge and you're fine.

If you know how to jam and have basic crack technique, this thing is quite a breeze. Would love to bring my rack next time and try leading this on gear.
