California Hot Licks 6a+

Rockfax Description
A good line that has unfortunately been affected by rockfall near the top, and the final bolt is not in place. However, the line gets climbed regularly. The thin wall and crack above lead to another short wall prior to the finish up steep ground. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Rebolted after a rock fall. Safe if you stay on the bolt line but PLEASE KEEP OUT OF THE GULLY!

bit dusty but nice moves and fun flowstone crack. leaned round arete from stuck-on crimps to clip lower-off as couldn't reach direct.

wow what a layback. shame about the dirty start and top. basically onsight, because I thought the loweroff was missing. lent back on last bolt, only to see the loweroff above the roof. weird last move, traverse in from the gully.
Jonathan Emett - Lead rpt - 26/May/12 with siwan

easy all the way up missed the last bolt on the face which didnt bother me i was confident but climbing over the top massive hold broke off causing me to fall about 8 meters. I would recomend using last bolt to lower off.
Michael Allday - Lead O/S - 17/Sep/11 with John Dormer

Awesome moves until a dreadful finish (left?) - can't see the lower off
