1) 4b, 10m. As for Rose Bowl.</br>2) 5a, 20m. Step left and pull through a notch in the overhang to the left of a large hanging flake, onto the slab above. Continue up the face on good holds, trending slightly leftwards. A fine pitch with many (even 10 perhaps) surprising holds.
4b?!! Maybe it depends on the line taken, but by the logical direct approach it has to be reachy 5a/b, though very safe.
2 pitches: 1st pitch, 4b; 2nd pitch, 5a...surely.
Seems harder than 4b on the second pitch (4c/5a) - but I also got confused and trended right not left :-) Are you supposed to go directly through the top overlap?
I was told the top pitch was 5a - that's what i expected and that's what I got. A very worthwhile climb in a great location.
1st pitch a path, not worth 4a let alone 4b.
The 1st pitch is 4b, however the second is 5a through the headwall
Mid section definately 5a. Overall good route but not in my top fifty. Whole area needs some gardening.
A good route, though most of the craters have flowers growing in them. Mostly 4a/b but with a single very reachy much harder 5a move (harder for the short, a doddle for the tall) - makes for a very unbalanced route which detracted a little I thought. Hence 2 stars not 3.
Agree with the last comment, 5a for 1 move but 4a/b for the rest. I'd still give it 3 stars though because the elephant footprints are such amazing holds! A route leaving you with a big grin.
