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
