Rancho Cucamonga >>
An eliminate up the lower wall between What About Me and Rancho Cucamonga. Start behind the budleia (if it's stil there) and gain and pinch a poor sidepull. Placing the other foot on, dynamically gain an intermediate crimp and then go again out right for a bigger but dirty flat hold. Less positive holds above and to the right of this lead to a big move from a finger jug to the sanctuary of a niche and good wires. From the good break above (good hex and or cams) finish more direct to the left of Rancho, or to suit.

RH
Paz - TR dog - 24/Oct/08 with WG

Found a new way on the RH version which reduced the need for a massive slap between jugs, which will be reassuring... Direct may also go to someone beastly on crimps, but 3 routes from one hold may well be taking the piss.

The RH version & RH finish, 3 times clean...

Trying a RH start.
Paz - TR dog - 26/Jul/08 with WG

Felt OK after 4 days work. Grade's for the onsight (on account of it being bold, tenuous, dynamic and blind) in case someone's never abseiled down it before.

Hidden - 2nd - 05/Mar/08

Linked it straight off. Clearly burning off AB provided the required motivation (even if he did rate it font 7a instead of 7a+).
Paz - TR RP - 22/Dec/07 with AB

Discovered intermediate crimp and used it!. Would've linked it but the rope got caught under my arm and I had to hang on and feed the shunt up it (or risk a bigger deck out), after which I was too pumped.

First move and RF on.
