Escapade (5.11a)
Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>

Description 

An excellent sport climb with sustained technical moves and slippery stances. This route involves climbing on small features and slippery sloping rock. Moving up to clip the third bolt involves a very cool stemming move to reach a large two-handed hold allowing a secure clip of the third bolt.


Protection 

Seven (7) bolt protection. Two bolt anchor. Rap rings.

Established as a top rope route in 1977, it was originally named One Step Beyond and rated 5.10c.

Sustained. The description above isn't correct. The tough clip is the 4th bolt. I stemmed left (barely!) prior to grabbing the jug and was able to make the clip.

Good hands and wickedly slick feet characterize this route - which for Mission Gorge is awesome.

Awesome route! Try Master of Defeet if you want a slightly easier climb on similarly small and slippery features. Sustained but with lots of good rest stances.
