The Area 

Just after passing The Y Crack, the trail splits into two. One trail bears left taking one towards The Prowe Area and the summit, while to the immediate right it drops down to the base of this great collection of routes at The Roof Area. Although these routes have been and will be lead, most folks TR them. To set them up, one hikes up at the aforementioned left in the trail, or continue past the Roof Area below and scramble up the other side.


Getting There 

Main Trail via the Y crack, heading right and down.

Featured Route For The Roof Area
The Shoulder (5.10a) ascends the rightmost crack in the image...outstanding!

The Shoulder 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ E1 5a  CA : San Diego County : ... : The Roof Area
This is the crack climb of Dixon Lake. Fingers to fist, this crack climb is truly a classic and a standard for the grade. It is the very clean crack on the right side of The Roof wall. The crux is entering the bulge portion of the crack, halfway up. A right foot is the key before liebacking a move or two to a couple of left traversing moves at the finish. Highly Recommended....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
