Erica nears the top of the first pitch of Half Ascent on a cool February day at Sespe Gorge.
A party from Goleta starts up Ending Crack, during another picture-perfect day at Sespe Gorge.

The right side of the Black Wall at Sespe gets the most traffic. When you get to the wall, climb Tree Root (5.5) then Ending Crack (5.6/5.7). Both have good protection on solid rock. One of my favorites is Pipe Cleaner (5.6). It's a shorter pitch but offers larger fist/hand jams and even a few knee jams (dare we say "off-width"?) on clean rock. With 2 ropes you can top rope most of (not so clean) White Spider (5.7) and a good chunk of nearby real estate. Pine to Pine (5.6R) on the right side offers a less clean alternative if Tree Root and Ending Crack are taken.
