This crag has many fun, albeit short, bolted face climbs as well as good crack climbs. It is a fun winter or springtime hang.

Palming Baby Heads is a great challenge that tackles the tallest part of this cliff. It climbs the flaring crack on the right side of Classy Cliff proper. After the first 2 bolts, use all of your body tension to keep you from swinging out of the flaring crack. The hardest moves are at the top of the crack getting established on the slopey ledge.
