Crux is moving from the diagonal crack and pulling up onto the slab. Crux has a nice bolt. Just before getting to the first bolt, a purple camalot .5" will protect a small wedge crack. Do one little step up move and then clip the first bolt. Move up and right on the diagonal crack, past a gold camalot placement and another bolt. Crux is pulling onto slab, but a left hand crimp will appear just when needed. Co tinue to the top past two more bolts and a few gear placements....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
