East Wall (Diamond Dogs Area)
Chris Lane leading Lickety Splits.
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.
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.
Weather station 10.5 miles from here

Three stars out of five....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
