Description 

This is the taller and more impressive portion of the crag that despite it's broken appearances offers a number of fun climbs on solid and highly featured granite.

Many of the climbs here are fairly new and see little traffic so don't be surprised if they seem a bit dirty.

Blurry (5.8)
Drift and Die (5.10a)
Out of Sight (5.10b)
Community Service (5.10a)

Tim on the headwall of Drift and Die

Drift and Die 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  CA : San Bernardino Mountains : ... : Left Side
Preclip the awkwardly placed first bolt and then climb up a short right-slanting ramp to the right (5.10-) to gain a jug and the 2nd bolt. Wander up the easy slab above to finish with a short, steep headwall past two more bolts (5.10-) and shared anchors with Blurry. As an alternative it's possible to climb directly past the first bolt (5.11-).Although horribly dirty when first established this route has cleaned up greatly and offers a few fun moves....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
