An outstanding route on very solid rock that runs up the center of the Angelino Wall. The top of this route is identified by a prominent offwidth that splits a large wedge-shaped slab - this feature is visible from anywhere one can see the wall. Approach: park somewhere 'legal' in the ranger's residence area and approach wall by the ridgeline running down (SE) from the wall. There are several small cliff bands to negotiate, but nothing technical. The route starts at the top of a sandy slope in the middle of the wall where a near-perfect splitter finger crack runs for 50 meters (i.e. the first pitch). Follow cracks for 5-6 pitches to a short traverse left to the base of the splitter offwidth. Man-up and do this and follow a few more easier pitches to summit. Descent: Carefully pick your way down the East side ledges until a few rappels will take you into the notch, down which you scramble back south to Oak Canyon. This route will go free at 5.12. Find accurate topo in visitor's center. FA: Dave Jones and Bob Yoho 199?
