The crux to this route comes early on and is extremely sequential, with only a couple of crap pieces to protect it well below your feet. As you pull through the tough bit you will be rewarded with brilliant protect-able face climbing up a left trending seam. Once this beautiful dance of lie backing right, then left, then right again peters out, follow face features straight up to the top. Better yet step right and climb off width and hand crack/groove to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
