Deceptively overhanging, this rock is the largest in the area. Routes run approximately 30 - 65 feet all around on the main rock. This spot offers a spectacular view of the ocean, but then again, so does every rock in the area.
The main rock holds the most spectacular climbing at Dry Creek, containing sport routes in the 5.10a to 3.13c range. This contains some of the toughest sport routes in the Bay Area. Additionally, there are also several traditionally leadable lines on the shorted right side of the wall.
The rock is suprisingly frictiony, and you will find it in the sun from the late morning to a beautiful ocean sunset, which this rock has a magnificent view of.
You can either lower or walk off of all the routes on the rock.
CAUTION!!! Many of the bolts on the loftmost routes are quite old, and are really rusted out.
Once you're on top of the main rock, you can walk to the rightmost side and track down the bolts to rappell down.
If you're more inclined to just walk down you can simply walk down from the top and around to the right side, where you will see the overhanging face and arete on the largest rock around.
