A small section of rock crag with one exceptional route (Fissure Man), and a couple of contrived ones to fill in the spaces. Good wall to hit if The Power Wall is overrun (likely). Starts right out of the wash, might not be accessible if we ever get some rain in Southern California. Good luck pulling your rope without getting the end wet.

The most obvious line on the wall. Start up the hueco slab start to the overhang. Work around this to get to the extremely sharp edges on the lower half of the crack. A few more moves and you can get a couple jams in the feces incrusted, jagged crack above. This leads to the final headwall, which involves face climbing around various heucos that serve as homes to the birds that you have to thank for the glorious crack climbing below. Good times!...[more]   Browse More Classics in California

Pulled a large flake off above the 2nd bolt. Then just yesterday, another hold disintegrated in my hands. The 4th or 5th bolt up is rusted and half pulled out, it appears someone tried to glue the expansion bolt back in. Wouldn't advise taking falls on this route.
