Probably the best area in Pine. There are some fantastic high balls, and a high density of problems. If you go to Pine, plan to spend a lot of time here.

Getting There 

Second major area down the road. You will see a boulder with chalk and many problems in a campsite. If there are people camped there ask their permission to go through their campsite, or park farther down the road and hike it. The area starts at the campsite and goes down the hill.

Use a couple of small vertical holds to get your right hand up onto the sloping ramp. From here, figure out a way to ascend the dihedral. Very tricky and unique problem that's worth figuring out....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
