Up and right from the Dairy Queen Wall is this nicely featured wall with a good assortment of mostly crack routes and the odd face climb. Highlights here include Tax Man (5.10a) and Alf's Arete (5.11a). Morning sun and afternoon shade.

Getting There 

Approach as for the Dairy Queen Wall but head up and right through boulders following a worn path to the base of the wall. Plan on a 15-25 minute approach from the car.

On the left edge of the IRS wall is an almost vertical arete with 7 bolts. This is Alf's Arete. Technical edging and very thin holds characterise this face climb. The first bolt is a little high, and you definitely don't want to blow it before clipping it. The finish, though quite slabby, is run out and forces you to keep your concentration high. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
