|Pistol Whipped Wall
Add Photo Add Comment Printer View
This is the left-most bolted line on the Pistol Whipped Wall and despite first appearances goes at a moderate grade. The route starts on a short right-slanting ramp system that leads to a flake and then up past several horizontals to reach a steep headwall capped by a slanting dike.
Well protected with an airy feel, this is a good warm-up for the harder lines here and is a recommended climb for the grade at this area.
7 bolts, sport anchors

What a fun climb! Always good holds when you need them, and as previously stated goes more easily than its appearance would suggest and, as such, a area total classic.
Doesn't quit right to the last clip.

The So Cal Sport Climbing Book shows only 3-4 bolts for this route but there are like 7.
