New access to Allenspur climbing MORE INFO >>>


A fantastic route that goes up one of the most classic flakes and splitters out at Allenspur. All bolted due to the flakes somewhat delicate nature. No individual move is that difficult but it is one of the more sustained routes out here. Go send it!


If taking the lower approach this is the climb that will be at the end of the trail.


Bolts to 3 bolt anchor

By no means an unreasonable trad line. Gear is good but spaced in a few areas. Fixed a nut at the 3rd bolt.

If on gear a rack to 3" is sufficient

I think the reason it was bolted was to protect the somewhat delicate nature of the flake. If you fall and pull the flake down there are going to be several angry locals after your head for ruining one of the best climbs in the area.

certainly an interesting ethical debate. Using natural gear on a sport climb. Yet I agree that there is one placement within the 'somewhat delicate' flake. My apologize for fixing an eyesore but I am by no means the first person to do these lines on gear.

...but quite possibly the first to spray about it!
