This slabby face is home to about ten routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.11 with an fairly even mix of crack and face climbs. Rock quality ranges from fairly good to atrocious with the seldom done Shit Sandwich (5.9 R/X) an indication of just how bad things can get.

X-Rated Tits (5.9) and An Eye for an Eye And a Route for a Route (5.10b) are some of the more popular routes at this wall.

Getting There 

Approach via the well-marked trail leading to Barker Dam. Lakeside Rock is the obvious slabby face just to the east of the dam.
