The fun part


This is a route from the So Cal Sport Climbing guide, it was rated 5.8. The crux move feels harder, I believe the guide is wrong or some hold must have fallen. Shorter route, with many ways to start from the ground. Easy climbing until you hit the main face, then pretty smooth after the crux. Shared anchors with No Scope.


Route starts in small enclosed area, directly below direction anchors face. Follow just to the left of TR position when climbing.


2 anchors (Use of webbing will prevent drag)

Crux on this climb requires a little bit of thinking, I used a crimp and lunge method. After that rest of the climb is smooth sailing.

Something must of broke because I remeber it being easier than the route on the right and it felt around 5.8 like 2 years ago.
