This seldom visited area is reached by a scramble through boulders to reach a corridor with half a dozen routes from 5.6 to 5.12a. All Booked Up (5.6), The Albatross (5.10c) and Thunderhead (aka Gaston's Groove) (5.12a) are among the better lines here.

Getting There 

Approach by scrambling up boulders right of Dodo Buttress to reach this hidden area. It's also possible but a bit tricky to access this from the vicinity of Solosby Wall.

This very nice looking crack in a shallow right facing corner quickly opens up from fingers in pods to a perfect handcrack to the top. The approach has to be the only reason this gets no stars in the guides. If this were in the campground it would get done 10x per day. While short, the approach is tricky. Chimney moves can help down low where the corner is deeper and almost trough-like....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
