Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>


This route is unrelenting. it starts out slow but after the roof the slopers and the angle start to add considerable pump. Hang on till the anchors and it is one sweet crack climb in the tropics.


Pearl Jam is located just to the left of Rolling Thunder. Scamble up some choss and start the journey. You might want your belayer up on the choss ledge as well.

If you're missing Valley jams while on Tonsai, check out this route.

This is the most impressive limestone crack I've ever seen. It is steep, tall, wide, and unrelenting. It looks like a granite fist crack and appears from the base as if one could use #4 Camalots to protect it... about 20 of 'em. In fact it climbs more like limestone than granite, there are features, making for some gymnastic movement--complete with fists! Damn burly and inspiring route.

so how exactly was this rig put up?? i know that you need to drill two holes but what are the specifics? long drill bit maybe? how do you make it so that the threads dont get cut on the rock?? how do you actually thread the rope?? and how safe is it exactly??

ive seen threads in a few places but this particular route stuck out in my mind
