Description 

This is the lower of the two crags and is slightly larger, taller and more interesting looking than it's uphill neighbor. Routes here are a little dirty and still in the process of cleaning up.

Routes from left to right:

Bearish (5.10c)
Skyscraper (5.10c)
Delancey Crack (5.7)
Wall Street (5.10a)
Bullish (5.9)

Getting There 

From the Lost Orbit Rock - East Face hike east, passing a seasonal stream, and then pick up a well-worn trail heading north. The crags, the first ones encountered, are readily visible just to the right (east). Plan on a 5 minute walk from Lost Orbit Rock, a 10 minute walk from the vicinity of Parking Lot Rock and a 15 minute walk from the upper parking area.

The fun starts right away on Bearish, with a difficult crux involving a high step and some very careful balance. After clipping the second bolt, make a difficult and awkward traverse left to an awkward ramp. Work back up to the right, along the ramp. From here the climb ascends straight up with some very interesting moves getting to and passing a large chicken head. Continue up the wall on delicate features to gain the anchor, shared with Skyscraper. Despite the preponderance of lichen, the...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
