Comments: From the top of this route to the anchors of Capitalism & Freedom is not easy 5th class as described in the description. the last 15' of Capitalism & Freedom is at least 5.9 climbing up a fairly steep slabby face. do this approach roped!

Comments: Cimbed this route on 5/13/2009 and blew a right hand hold off just past the crux after the second bolt. Not sure how this will effect the grade.

This is a great route and the mantel at the top is fun!

You can easily top rope this route by climbing Exilis Dihedral and traversing to the top ledge.

Comments: I also did this route as a trio, and raped all the way down and found the rope pull much cleaner. I have had my rope stuck raping of this route before.

Comments: fun route worth doing a bit run out in between the 3rd and 4th and the 4 and 5th bolts a fall before clipping the 4th bolt would result in a huge very ugly fall. how ever it is very easy climbing, I was very relived after clipping the 4th bolt. the mantel move is a very big committing move. it is possible to climb around it by going left. if you go for it look for a right foot to push you over the top. I placed a OP .75 link cam at the start of the route (bommer pice).

Is there any gear that im... more >>

I used a BD #10 stopper at the bottom of the crack and A OP #2 link cam in the middle of the crack.

Comments: Climbed this on 4/14/2008, now that part of the second pitch has broken off clipping the 4th bolt is very barndoor'ish lack of a good left foot makes this clip very intense, blowing this clip would result in a pretty serous fall. add 1/2 a grade just for clipping this bolt. 9+

Comments: Climbed this route 4/14/2008, on the first pitch there are several clean spots threw the crux sequence looks like flakes have broken off. I have climbed this before and it seem s harder now. there seems to be no good feet wile pulling the crux move. Definitely 10b.

Also we rapped off the back side to the base of Seven Steps to Heaven and got a nice bonus climb. Then rapped back down into the right side gully from the top of Seven Steps.

Climbed this one again on 4/18/2009 and after looking at ... more >>

Comments: AS of 2/28/2009 there are no anchors at the top of this climb. I spoke to someone who believes that the ancores have blown off with a chunk of rock. there is a bail beiner about 8 feet from the top. the rock is very loose and exstreamly scetchy. this face probly should not have been bolted.

Comments: The beta photo on this page of easy street and the far side dose not match the guide book Sport Climbing in the Santa Monicas. I climbed these climbs on 2/28/2009 and the guide book seems to be accurate. Climb #4 is not Golden Years, it is the Sperpent 10A and #5 is not Dirty Deeds it is Watermark 5.9.Golden Years and Dirty deeds are the next set of bolts to the left.
