Description 

Granite rock, with no shade. It's right off the road with a very easy approach, but you have to go through an old barb-wired fence (easy to get past). There's 3 established routes that range from 5.9 to 5.9+.

Getting There 

Park in a turn out to the right (south 178) about 22 miles up the canyon going east and about a 1/2 below the road sigh that reads "Boreal Rd, 1 Mile", or 5.1 miles from the Lake Isabella exit going west. Looking north you will see the Kern Canyon MBC right off the road. Cross the road and through a barb wire fence.

The crux is the second move right below a nice jug next to the crack. Just follow the straight up to a single belay hook. You can scramble up the left of the route to put up a top rope. There's stinging needle bushes in the area, so be careful....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

CONDITION REPORT 
Went today to climb this spot, but discovered that the anchors at the top have been damaged. My buddy and I are going to try and rebolt the anchors later.

Zach Badger. Are you talking about the single hanger anchors? That stinks about them being damaged. Did you use my entry to find these routes?
