BETA PHOTO: Uptown Rock - Lower Tier Unknown A - 10a Unknown...


This is the lowest of the three SE facing slabs at Uptown Rock. Previously, there was an old 4 bolt route/project. In the spring of 2016, Tai and Mary D. established four new routes. A 70m rope is required and 22 draws are recommended. All routes rappel from their top anchor to the midway anchor and then to the (climber's) right. Knot your ends, a single 70m rope will NOT reach the bottom on the (climber's) left side of the lower tier from the midway anchor! Check out the beta photo to get a better idea of what's going on. Note the there is some loose rock sitting on top of Shorty Wall.

Getting There 

Use the regular Uptown Rock approach.

Unknown D 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  California : Sierra Eastside : ... : Uptown Rock - Lower Tier
This is the farthest right route at the Lower Tier. Climb a single, long pitch along edges, smears, side pulls, etc. While the easiest way up is no harder than 5.8, it is quite possible to make things harder. Note: if you belay at the platform and not at the base of the vertical section/1st bolt you're going to run out of rope with a 70m. Tie in beforehand or put a knot in the end!...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
