Description 

The shady East Wall (North End) is a large slabby formation with generally good rock and home to a number of popular (and runout) climbs.

Lickety Splits (5.7 R), Zardoz (5.8 R), Guardian Angels (5.10a) and Diamond Dogs (5.10a) are all worth a visit.


Getting There 

Head right from the parking area following a well-marked trail, pass the East Face, and then as you pass through some brush you're there.

Barking Spider.  No longer R rated.....originally done with one bolt and one bashed RP, but now retro-bolted for your pleasure.

Start off about 20 feet to the right of Bone Along (the one one bolt route), go up the ramp and clip the first bolt about 15 feet up on the right side. To be honest, the bolt is camouflaged pretty well and in the sun, i didn't see it until i was on top of it. After that its smears and crimps to the next bolt, join the flared crack or don't and smear your way to the top. Great climb....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
