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.

On the far right end of Delancey Rock, use a lieback flake to reach a small roof. Pull the roof and continue up and left on nice plates. Although this line is bolted it could just as well be led on gear. The roof is not as intimidating as it may look and my friends and I all thought the route went at 5.8. I think it has cleaned up a bit in the lower section, making the climb easier than on the first ascent.As a variation, you can start on the same flake at the bottom, but follow the crack up...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Different in character to the Central Pinnacles, climbs here respond well to good balance and graceful technique rather than power.
