Description 

This is a large boulder just southeast of the Sandy Wash Corridor which has but a handful of problems from V-easy to V0; there are a few other problems on nearby boulders which range from V1 to V7 as well.

The best problem here is the tall and comitting False Ayatollah (V0) which takes a nice line up the tall west face just left of center. To descend head right (south) to where the boulder is shortest and then make an easy jump across to an ajacent boulder.


Getting There 

Approach as for the Sandy Wash Corridor but continue a little further on the "nature trail before heading east to this boulder which is visible from the trail.

Located on the west face of the boulder, just left of center and identifiable as face leading into a shallow right-facing corner; there is a large rock and a bush near the base of the problem as well.The crux moves on this are low as you work off a sharp crimp onto a small edge for your foot, but a bit higher, at the start of the corner, is the mental crux as you must commit to a high foothold to reach the temptingly close jugs in the corner. Easy moves lead up the corner to the top an...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
