All sprawled out.


A mediocre route up the usual Malibu pockets. The route also climbs over one of the many cesspools, with the value added benefit of possibly getting your rope wet when you pull the line. Great for rope biters, the flavors are magnificent.

Start by traversing left off a boulder at the base and getting up to the first bolt (the line straight up is for Junk Ramp 5.9). Then follow up over a small bulge on a few directional holds that really aren’t as good as one would expect at the grade, eventually onto juggy pockets to the anchor.


Far right side of the main face, starts on the right side of the small pool below Urban Struggle, finishing on the same anchors.


5 bolts and clips at the anchors.

Watch out on this one, there was a yellow jacket nest after the 4th bolt.

This route is a lot more interesting if you add the unnecessary risk of starting at suburban struggle and going right.
