One of the longest routes on the North wall. Crux found coming out of large hole/hueco. Well protected.


Route starts between two formations on the right side in front of a bush. Start just right of Holy Moly (which has large huecos and is an area classic)

Southern CA sport climbing guide route # 870


9 bolts to shut anchors. Rap down.

Long and varied, this gets you a ways off the ground.

Maybe worth doing while you're there, ok but not an area classic. Crux is a dynamic move coming out of the big hueco at about 1/3 height, great rest right before the slopey traverse moves over to the crux and a bolt right there as you start the sequence. It has some length for the area, which is nice, and a second easier crux up high exiting yet another big hole/hueco on some crimps.

Stemming off the other wall at the crux is strictly off route.
