Crack 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- 19 E2 5b  CA : San Diego County : ... : Lowenbrau Pinnacle
The only info on this route is the Lowenbrau topo, which simply calls it "crack". This is the splitter crack going up the wall on the inside of the cave, about 30 feet left of Right Under.Scramble up a block, set one or two micro-nuts, then crank up the tips crack to a thin hands section followed by twenty feet of beautiful ring-locks.Strangely absent from the climbing guide, this short climb is one of the best pure cracks in the county....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
