Second pitch

Description 

This climb can be done as one clean 5.7+ pitch, or taken to the top through easier terrain. Makes a good warm up and dries off very quickly after rain.

P1: Climb up to the right of a small triangle roof, past a horisontal crack, and trend up and right to a bolted anchor.

P2: Climb up and belay at the start of a left facing dihedral.

P3: Up and left until you're on a large ledge system.

P4: Option 1- Climb up and left through runout slab, past a bolt and into a right facing dihedral. Option 2- Go right into a left facing dihedral and follow it up.

The last half pitch is 4th class but a fall would be bad.


Location 

There are several slab climbs at the far right end of Little Baldy. This route starts on the left side of this area and climbs just to the right of a small triangular roof.


Protection 

5 or 6 draws and a .5" piece if only doing the first pitch, more small to medium gear if heading all the way up. One 60m rope is good unless you rap off the 150' first pitch.
