Description 

This large, sunny face has a number of moderate crack and face routes of varying quality, but you'll find no classics here. With parking nearby and a minimal approach this can be a good place to go if short on time and don't wish to join the customary circus at the Short Wall/Fuedal Wall.



Getting There 

Make a right (if driving into Indian Cove) at the intersection just past Pixie Rock and park in any of several spots near the south face of the formation. Approaches are minimal.

Follow the gold streak up the gritty slab with the crux moving past the first bolt. Once past the last bolt it's a little runout but the angle kicks back and it gets much easier. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Above Kundalini and Femine Itch are two face climbs, each with 4 bolts. One is lower than the other. I can't remember which one is which. Cold Carnitas (5.10+), and Left Overs (5.9) are the climbs. I bellieve they were put up by Tom Beck and Steve Parker.
