There are three bolted face climbs on the backside of Apparation Rock. This is the right one. It starts in some boulders and angles up a bit to the right climbing up steep slabs of patina patches....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

There's an easier descent than the one shown in the picture. As you head to the climber's left, keep going past the gully marked in the picture (which I really didn't like the look of), all the way to the south end of the formation. A low angle slab will lead you down to the side of the formation, and a quick boulder hop will get you back to the base. More roundabout, but also much more secure.
