Big Boulder, just a bit downhill from Temple of Ka...
S crack....... not much of a chimney. Crux is at the top, protected by two bolts.

Be careful, last year there was a daring rescue of two stranded climbers on that route.

Required 6 helos!!!

made the news.

Yeah...kind of a crack/chimney mutt. I went up it yesterday on a grigri self-belay and found it pretty mellow. Know how they got stuck?

They were kids in nikes who probably should have thought twice.
I believe two of them went to Chatsworth high up the street with my son.

Tough Mantle Problem.  Haven't sent yet...
Saw someone rappelling that a couple weekends ago with two people attached to him on the same rope. It was the definition of shit show.

A couple years ago I had to help rescue a couple highschoolers in sneakers who got stuck up on a ledge a few hundred feet right. Seems to happen a lot. I gotta give the kids credit though, they usually make it further up than you'd expect.
