Description 

Easy Street has become one of Southern California's most popular destinations for climbers seeking long moderate sport climbs. Part of the Far Side, which includes Kamikaze Cave, Dream Street, Easy Street, Black Face, and the Tea Room, Easy Street features moderate multi-pitch sport climbing on routes from
5.5 - 5.10d. While Easy Street requires more of a commitment due to the long approach to the eastern end of the cliff band, it offers shade in the early morning and from mid afternoon, as well. Easy Street offers one of the best collections of moderate sport routes in Southern California. Use of a helmet is advised as climbs continue to clean up with more use.

I have always restrained from using the term... but today, this place was full of gumbies... knocking huge blocks off and pelting the crowd below. This wall seems dangerous when swarmed by inexperienced climbers! I was about to lead a route, but someone up above walked over to the anchor (from another route) and set up a rappel... pretty annoying.

This is a great place for moderates if you can avoid the crowd!
