Page Type: Route
Lat/Lon: 34.31040°N / 116.8798°W
Route Type: Sport Climb
Time Required: Less than two hours
Difficulty: 5.10a


Use the same approach used for 'Coyotes At Sunset' and 'Black Magic Poodle'. Once at the base of Coyote Crag, locate a bolted line almost dead center of the east face (30 feet left of C.A.S). Belay at the same spot as Coyotes At Sunset.

Route Description

Climb up the left facing cleft to the first bolt (25' feet ). Clip 2 bolts as the route steepens on small edges and features. The crux of the climb is in between the 3rd and 4th bolt by making a series of sequential moves before moving onto easier terrain. Clip the 2 more bolts along the way before finishing at a 2 bolt belay with chains.

NOTE: the route author feels that indulging one (1) Hidden River Amber Ale makes this route feel like 5.8.... ; )
