the seam crux
Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>


Start the climb on the obvious cheat stone start. Try not to knock any blocks off. Reach up into the underclings and pull on. Traverse right using strength or trickery, lie back and stand up to an awkward rest. Next, bust out across the glass face using the seam (crux), use the broken section above the seam to head straight up or continue across the seam to escape out right.


Directly across the road from Hamburger Crack. Walk on top of the huge boulder that caps the huge chimney below. Set up the anchor on the south east side of the boulder down the smooth south east face. Walk down on the south side of the boulder to find the start. Look for the obvious cheat stone start.


Gear anchor. BD cams #1-3

I don't think I've seen this one. I've probably stood atop of it a thousand times though. Good post Eliot

thanks Adam, it's pretty good but a little loose in the beginning

Edited so now it's "right." It did feel a little soft for the grade.
