Know the location of this area? Show us! We don't know it, but we're working on cool new features that need it!


Similar to Phobos/Diemos in nature (south-facing, warm, steep, one-to-three pitch climbs), but different in that the climbs are a little more wandering and the approach is much easier.

Getting There 

Park at the Tenaya Lake parking lot, cross the street, and hike up slabs to a short headwall (which can be passed at the far left via two or three moves of 5.0). Continue up on a good trail to the base of the cliff.
