This is a great route up steep, quality rock with fun movement. It is one of the best here for its grade. It is a bit easier if you cheat out left.


This is the third climb from the left. Start on crimps below and right of first bolt (harder), or start up Dude and move right.


Four bolts to bolted anchor.

A small nut can be placed after last bolt to tame runout to the anchors. A small rack of tiny to medium wires and cams to #1 Camalot can be helpful on most Vallecito climbs. It's more like bolted adventure climbing than sport climbing.
