Top Climbing Routes - Leonids (5.9) - El Cajon Mountain, CA

Leonids (5.9) // El Cajon Mountain, CA

3 pitches -- all 5.9 & 350’ long -- in sunny Southern California. This sleazy multi-pitch is bolted well with some excellent rock.

Watch out!! your little toesies might be doggin from all the edging on the slab. Pack a beer.


This climb is pretty straight forward.

The route starts left of a 20 ft tower of blocks. 

  • P1: (5.9) Clip the first bolt from atop the blocks and follow the bolt line up and right for approximately 170 ft to a hanging belay. A slightly steeper section right before the anchor may be considered the crux of the climb. 
  • P2: (5.9) Continue climbing up and right past another dozen of so bolts, clipping an anchor bolt along the way, to a comfortable belay ledge. The anchor is positioned about 10 ft left of the route's line.
  • P3: (5.9) The route finishes up a short ramp up and right from the belay ledge. 
  • Descent: Rappel a short distance down to a prominent tower. From the tower rappel down through four more stations to the ground.  // (via
