A small detached tower and a larger to the right, hold a few quality 12's and a sick looking project. Nice setting right next to the river.

Getting There 

From the bottom of the upper approach take the left trail and then skirt the talus slope on its right, squeezing between the river and the tower to a small belay area.

The vertical arete right next to the river. A tricky start leads up to the sharp arete section. The business begins here. Balancey, technical moves lead up the arete, leading to a hard move to gain good edges which are followed to the top. Very good climbing on quality rock....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
