Climbing Area Index / Crag Y / Hotel California (5.7+)
Directions:  The route takes a direct line up the water-stained dihedral that forms the left boundary of the main Recess.
Description: The route is named for the huge California-shaped block part way up.
    Pitch 1: Climb the initial corner directly, with one awkward move (crux--fixed pins). Above, thin cracks on the right assist progress up the corner. Climb the wide crack on the right side of the California block, and belay on an airy ledge at its top. 80', 5.11a

    Pitch 2: Check out of the hotel with difficulty, straight up! A bolt and two fixed pins protect climbing up a steep open groove. Step left to avoid dirty rock at the top. 60', 5.10c

Gear: Standard Rack
Descent: rap the route
History:  July 18,1987 - George Hurley, Alex Alvarez and Larry Hamilton
