The cool belay spot. After the crux and some 5.9 you get to this spot. A very old bolt, placed on the FA is still there. Amazing historical piece, please leave it alone. Levy and Rachel caught up to us here as we were getting ready for the last two pitches.

Comments: Tristan is right on, I did a tr on it, when in the sun, slippery holds for sure. When TRing its best to clip the 2nd bolt to keep one from slamming into the ground behind you.

I was told that the FA and the rating comes from Tom Guilge (sp?) an uber strong dude for sure.

Best in the morning shade

Comments: Nice climb, I think its 10D... good thing that someone fixed the bolts.

Do you know what the name of the climb to the right of this climb is? Starts at the same fallen log ledge, the crux is at the top... I think its 11a. Beautiful, interesting steep edging, on golden stone... bolts also fixed by some smart climber.

Best in the late afternoon, in summer. AM in the winter = sun.

Comments: As marked, route #12 really 3rd classes to summit via a chimney... I don't think one can climb where the line shows at the top... go look for yourself. Really good bouldering up on the summit of Kern Slab.

Comments: Randy... thank you for a good discription of the "Root" ....

After getting tossed off the blank section over and over again, I was thinking WTF is up with that?

Def harder than any 12 that has ever smacked me down....


And the large Pine Tree used as a marker for Kern Slab... its ready to fall over... right on to the face!

Comments: I do not live in SB...Moorpark. I only roll in and enjoy the local rocks when its to hot or to cold at other places... So where is this "Rattlesnake Canyon".... if its below Gibralter... I think I know how to locate it.

One of the benefits of the fire?

Looks like a fun place, thanks.

Comments: Yes, not at all by the "sex wall", rather 180 degrees from the sex wall. The sex wall is a collection of ultra short, slabbbbb climbs.
I like to climb to the top of Trapper via one of the other sport climbs and then Rap into the start of Carson/Kodas. A few other climbs go up the overhanging face to the right of the arete. I forget the names, they be 10's

Comments: One can do a direct start about 10- 15 right of the Book. You can place a long runner around a bump, and climb straight up. Not to add confusion to this fine climb, but this was the original 1938 start.
