Wilburs Turning In His Grave, 5.10d

Wilburs Turning in His Grave 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ 21 E3 5b  CA : San Bernardino Mountains : ... : Wilbur's Tombstone
Start up the blunt arete, and clip the first bolt. From here continue via a thin seam passing the 2nd bolt which leads easily up to the steep finish.The meat of the climb is one very hard move past the 3rd bolt, reaching to a huge hold up and right (passed the 4th bolt). The crux move is very high dependent, and can be easily avoided by moving slightly left at the 3rd bolt, then back right to finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Its worth carrying a couple of small cams for almost all the routes on the slabby face, since the bolts are fairly well spaced apart.
