This large wall is host to a number of fine routes but despite that it sees little traffic, probably because the routes tend to be hard, runout or a bit of both. Nonetheless, Grand Canyon Donkey Trail (5.10a R), Stitch in Time (5.10d), The Woodshed (5.11d) and Every Which Way but Up (5.12b R) are worthy if in the area.

Getting There 

From the Split Rock parking area follow a climber's trail southwest, aiming for a wall with a distinctive diagonal dike system clearly visible on the approach. Turn left into a bushy, rock-filled valley aiming for the right side.

Begin this route by climbing to a high first bolt and then continue up on grainy friction past three more bolts, the last one being above the dike. Bolted anchor/rap on top.A fun climb that would be even better were the rock higher quality. Still, not a bad route and a recommended climb if in the area and wanting to do a slab route. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
