A large east-facing formation back behind the Freak Brothers Dome. Home to a small handful of routes, most notably the diverse Early Bird, as well as a couple of face climbs.

There’s usually a rap station at the top of Early Bird consisting of a few slings with knot chocks (requires 2 ropes). If that’s not your cup of tea there’s a fairly easy, albeit a bit long, downclimb off the back of the formation - scramble up to the summit and descend in a gulley.

Getting There 

If approaching from the entrance to Wonderlands, walk past the Freak Bros Dome, then cut right up a wide valley. A trail will eventually cut right and a scramble will get you up to the main formation. Several poor quality trails precede the proper trail, if you have to do a bunch of bush wacking you’ve chosen one of these. If you run into a large, well, obelisk, in the middle of the pathway that’s The Red Obelisk and you’ve gone too far.

The crux comes at the point where the nice tips to fingers crack flares out and you have to do some fun yet interesting stemming/smearing moves on small edges to surmount. You need a 70m if you are going to the block at the top, or you can stop at the obvious ledge about 20 feet above where the crack peters out. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
