North end of the Central Gorge, Solarium on the ri...
Definitely the most popular area of the gorge. The Warm Up wall, the Pub, the Social Platform and the Great Wall of China are all here and almost always crowded. These areas feature tons of well traveled 5.8 - 5.11 sport climbs. The climbs highly concentrated so its possible to knock out tons of pitches in a day. There is a toilet located at the base of the approach trail. Please use it.
Park at the Central area and hike down the steep 2nd and 3rd class gully to the dirt road. Be careful not to knock rocks off since the Pub wall is directly below the upper part of the trail.

This is a classic Herbert rig that follows a seam up an immaculate wall. The crux comes early and is just a few moves long (I’d guess about V4 or 5). If you boulder or know how to campus it’s bound to feel easy. But, you still have to have enough fitness to romp through some fun 5.11 at the top. Great route; very striking. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA

Descent has been upgraded with incredible stone stairways thanks to some hard working individuals. This speeds the hike up and is much safer. (11.1.12) Some amazing classics lie down in the central. Enterprise, choclate to morphine and expressway just to name a few.
