Just off the road, this small rock has good routes in the 5.10 range. The southwest side (Fire or Retire, Cranking Skills or Hospital Bills) is warm and protected from the wind, and would be a location on colder days. The northeast face (No Perch is Necessary, The Usual Suspects) is less sheltered.

Getting There 

Park in the south side pullout a few hundred yards before the Real Hidden Valley/Intersection Rock intersection. The southeast face is clearly visible from the road. To approach it, walk around the right and up. For the south face head left and around.

Pull a technical mantle (easier if you are taller) and clip the first bolt. A spot is not out of the question before clipping the bolt. Slabby moves lead past the second bolt to the base of a thin crack. Off balance thin fingers lead up to and over a roof.The route is most easily approached from the right. As you look at the rock from the pullout, the top of a dead tree is visible.The route begins in a pit right of the tree....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
