1994...Forgot who took this pic.

Johnson Problem V7 7A+ CA : Los Angeles Basin : ... : Split Rock
The undercut south face overhanging roof problem...Big moves to weird slopey funkness and again to the lip at an incut but rounded crimp. A big span move to and from the left arete and then forget about where your feet are, as you lurch and do a powerful rock-up to funky edges. Do a stand up move and slab it over slightly dicey terrain to the top.For those Coloradoans, its like a harder version of Germ Free Adolescence to the lip but then it gets really ugly!! Watch out if one of the holds above...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
