Climb up a flake, then pass a bolt (crux) at 20 feet and up to anchors. P2: climb up the corner (bring gear to #4 camalot) to a comfy belay ledge. P3: Up a section of wide crack then undercling out a roof (reminiscent of Commitment, in Yosemite Valley) to a comfy ledge. Rappel the route (bring extra webbing to back up the anchors)....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

To get there, take the roaring river fall trail until a side trail goes east. Take that trail east for about 15 minutes to get to the foolproof plan route. If you walk south for 15 minutes from the parking area you just get to the falls, and it's a ways east of that.
