Dave's Deviation 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  CA : Tahquitz & Suicide Rocks : ... : West Face - Left Side
This route starts just right of The Jam Crack. Pitch 1 (5.9) is a very nice, clean finger and thin hands crack. Pitch 2 (5.9) starts at the left end of the Pitch 1 belay ledge. It is less sustained than pitch 1, with face climbing up a groove, then a tricky move over an overhang. Pitch 3 (5.8 R) has very poor protection, but fun climbing up a thin dihedral and face above. The route finishes at Pine Tree Ledge. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
