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.

Cave Route 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a CA : San Francisco Bay Area : ... : East Face
Climb on the right side of the face up to the cave system using some interesting behind your head moves and roof practice. Use caution (tie yourself into the tree at the top of the slab above the route) when setting up your top rope.The tree that juts into the fall path is the reason for the "s" rating, as a fall out of the cave will send you into the tree. Scrapes and bruises are probably unavoidable, but swinging into it face first could be really painful....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
