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.

Getting There 

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

Double cracks in a cleft to start, move up and right through a short cruxy roof (look right for bolts). Pull through to steep postive holds and a few more bolts before moving out further right onto the exposed face. Enjoy the roar of the river as you move upwards and slightly left into a shallow dihedral that will take you to the chains. Clipping the anchor can be a touch awkward, get the feet up and find the money mini-jug. A loose block is found just below the anchors to the right, so stay lef...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
