Seebolt 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  CA : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Stirrup Rock - North Face
Seebolt begins in a left-leaning hand and finger crack that starts off the far left side of a steep blank wall. Reach right to clip the first bolt and launch into the bouldery crux. Press out a steep mantle and continue onto the well-featured upper wall. Fun climbing on easier terrain leads to a fixed anchor. An optional 1.5"-2" piece can supplement between the 2nd and 3rd bolts. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
