This pocketed wall gets morning and early afternoon sun and some shade late in the day. Standouts here are Pick Pocket
(5.11a) and the "Sex" routes. Some routes in the center start off of a ledge which requires an easy 5th class scramble.
From the upper approach, hike south down the gorge, past the trestle, around the corner, over the log and the bridge, through the nettle swamp and take the left trail up towards the insanely chalked wall.

The first sport route in the gorge. Ground up bolted by John Bachar in the late 80's. This route is easily identified but its copious amounts of chalk. Start off of the boulder and crank hard starting moves up the pocketed face. Halfway up move a little left to gain a good ledge. From the ledge either bust out left to a juggy flake system or continue up and right and then back left on pockets (harder but not as good). The pockets on this climb are amazing....[more] Browse More Classics in CA

What's the deal with the route right of Please Baby Baby??? All that chain at the anchor?

It's called Uncle Reach .11d put up by Dr. Mark Robinson. I hear it's probably 12a if you're short. I think the chain and multiple bolts has to do with rock quality (separating the bolts a bit more than usual) but I haven't been up there so that's just a guess. There's some good link ups on that wall though. Starting on Uncle Reach and angling across Please Baby to finish on Pick Pocket is 11a and starting on Pick Pocket finishing on Please Baby is 12a. Both are fun. The pocket jugs on the middle portion of Please Baby are awesome.
