This area offers the tougher climbing at Cragmont, but it's a very relative tougher. The routes range from 5.9 to 5.11c, and it's probably not the part of Cragmont for beginners. Surrounded by trees, chances are pretty good that you're going to be in the shade most of the day here.

Getting There 

Approach: About a minute. Down an easy trail. From the street, walk downhill on the left side of the park past the bathrooms. The first rock is the northeast face, the second, just around the corner is the east face. The left side of the east face is recognizable because it contains the only bolts on routes. The east face officially ends at the arete, which is just right of some cavy holes 25 feet off the deck.

Bolt Route.

Bolt Route 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- E4 6a CA : SF Bay Area : ... : East Face
The only route in the area that has bolts on the face of the rock. A neato sustained crux awaits above the 1st bolt, and continues over the roof. Clipping the last bolt is NOT advised, as it looks old, and just clipping it probably makes the route 5.11d. Also, it will unnecessarily create excessive rope drag because the reach to the top anchors is about as far as the reach to the 3rd bolt. Walking off the top is probably best, as it will save your rope some wear. Falling in the easier sections ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
