Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Face moves lead to a small roof with a crack. Pull hard through the roof and finish up easy ground to a bolted anchor.


Location 

Left of an obvious offwidth in the Standard Deviation area.


Protection 

Small cams. 1st placement is high. Might be big enough for a small cam, maybe a nut would be better.

First placement is not that high, and its only about 5.5 climbing to get there and small nut slots in beautifully. After that there are two great placement before and at the roof, and then you can throw in whatever you need to finish. A great lead.

Just curious, when you get to the roof do you work that crack all the way up or use some of the holds out right near the Back to Basics OW?
