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.

I guess to build a skyscraper you have to have a solid foundation. Skyscraper is all about the start. The fun begins with an off-balance and hard-to-reach clip. This height-dependent crux involves a long reach and delicate balance to work into a stem. Key holds allow the climber to work up while continuing to stem, to reach the second bolt and a large flake on the left. Tenuous moves gain the wall above, where more straightforward climbing leads to the anchor, shared with Bearish. Rappel t...[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.
