Description 

Situated between Kung Fu Canyon and Year of the Cat Gully and just west of Shangri-La Valley is this high point with a nice collection on blocks on the hilltop as well as the sides of the hill. A number of the problems here are on the tall side, so bring your big pad and go for it.

Some of the better problems here include Shades of the Oldschool (V2 R), White Flight (V3 R), Standing on the Head of the Dragon (V4), Green Tea ArĂȘte (V4), Space Wrangler (V4), Tribe Called Conquest (V5 R), Solitude (V7), Conquest Direct (V7 R), Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (V7), Crack-Mantel-Sap (V9 R) and Solitude, Sit (V10).

Getting There 

Approach by heading uphill from the southwest edge of Shangri-La Valley, near the March Boulder or head up Kung Fu Canyon and bear left when near the top of the canyon. Approach time is 20-30 minutes.

Sun it the morning, shade in the afternoon. One of the nicer looking boulder problems at the Tram, the movement is just as fun.SDS on obvious huge start hold, move up and left to great sloper, from there you use heel hooks, gastons, crimps, and more slopers to get to the big ledge, mantle up and smile....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
