Climbing Area Index / Crag Y / California Detour (5.9)
Directions:  Begin ten feet right of the HOTEL CALIFORNIA corner.
Description: This route began as an attempt on the obvious line of HOTEL CALIFORNIA. When their original goal seemed impractical, Jim Ongena and George Hurley instead climbed this line of least resistance.
    Pitch 1: A moderate lie-back leads up to a stance. Move left onto the slab, then go up large hand cracks to a fixed piton. From the piton, move left and up the left side of the main HOTEL CALIFORNIA corner. You are now below the California block. Climb the left side of this block to a belay stance below and left of its top. 60', 5.9

    Pitch 2: Angle left and head toward the top of the cliff at a large pine tree. 35', 5.7

Gear: Standard Rack
Descent: rap the route
History:  June 17,1987 - Jim Ongena and George Hurley
