Like the name implies, this cliff is basically a series of massive corner systems, yielding some fine arete and stem problems as well as some pretty good crack climbs.
From the bottom of the upper approach take the left trail and skirt the talus slope to the left, crossing the telephone pole over the swamp and up around the pink slab.

Boulder up to a high first bolt (optional gear here) and then lieback your way up the splitter crack/flake to finish with a seam on a steep slab. Decent crack climbing skills will negate the need for anything but quickdraws, but if unsure take some gear.Originally done with only a couple of bolts and gear (and rated 10d), this route slowly evolved over time as more bolts were added here and there, and now stands as a fully bolted and totally classic sport route. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
