Left 5.10 route on South Buttress 1. Follow the ancient crappy bolts.  I "assume" you start up in the right chimney and then traverse left over the ledge to gain the start of the route where the first "bolt" is located.  <br /> <br />Don't lead this climb!

5.10 (unknown) 5.10 6b 20 VII- 19 E2 5b  CA : Los Angeles Basin : ... : South Buttress 1
Crux is above the 3rd bolt. I believe you don't start in the overhang*, but climb up right and traverse left onto the climb from the big ledge. The bolts are crap, so don't lead this!A left hold is loose above the 3rd bolt. Don't yard this off onto your belayer. It's big enough to kill someone if it hits 'em in the head!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
