Perfect rock and a great variety of climbs make this a popular location. Its shady in the morning and catches a lot of sun later in the day. The routes tend to be technical face or corner/crack systems.
From the bottom of the upper gorge trail take the lefthand trail and head up the talus slope on its righthand side. Head for the "inset" alcove area at the top of the slope

The steep dihedral just outside of the alcove on the right. The climb starts up the face to the start of the steep corner system. Strenuous moves lead up the dihedral to a stance. From here perplexing moves lead left and up to a juggier finish. The climbing is amazingly varied and quite sustained. One of the best 5.11's in the gorge. The name is very fitting....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
