Mark and the Middle Finger.
Current San Diego County Advisories MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Slightly overhanging and crimpy climbing takes you to the top of a pinnacle shaped boulder. Lead Orthanc (5.8) to establish a bolted toprope anchor for this climb. This is a great climb to finish off the day!


Location 

Lower Middle Earth.


Protection 

Toprope bolts with a rap station, requires slings and locking carabiners.

The belay is one of the last nice shady areas in the afternoon. Thus making it another reason to end the day here.
