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

A slabby ramp leading to a Yosemite like dihedral on beautiful grey rock. The slab is easier terrain with more widely spaced bolts. The crux is near the top of the route and incorporates liebacks and/or stemming. Holds are generally good throughout the entire route. This route is somewhat of an anomoly for the Gorge since it involves more technique opposed to mostly power, making it a climb to not miss. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
