This shaded wall offers landscaping at the base, great belay areas, and quality climbing. There are 16 climbs on this section of wall, ranging from 5.9 to 12a.

Getting There 

After you park at the pullout by the sign, or right next to the cattle grate (though I'm not sure if that's kosher or not), cross the stream via a fence (which you can easily traverse). Walk uphill 50 feet and you'll run into it.

I go to pick her up.
she's on some errand.
she always has errands
many things to do.
I have nothing to do.

she comes out of her apartment
I see her move towards my car

she is barefooted
dressed casually
except for huge ear rings.

I light a cigarette
and when I look up
she is stretched out on the street

a quite busy street

all 112 pounds of her
as beautiful as anything you might

I switch on the new radio
and wait for her to get up.

she does.

I flip the car door open.
she gets in
I drive away from the curb.
she likes the song on the radio
she turns up the radio.

she seems to like all the songs
she seems to know all the songs

each time I see her she looks better
and better

200 years ago they would have burned her
at the stake

now she puts on her
mascara as we
drive along.
