I didn't climb this route but thought I'd go ahead and add it to get the word out so it gets climbed then, commented on. Stand on block to reach dike & clip first bolt, follow dike across face (I know there's at least one more clip, sorry for the crummy description, if someone doesn't correct this I'll fix it after this winters climbing trip by climbing it like I should have done in the first place)...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
