This is the creatively named 200 foot, west-facing granite slab which is the focal point of the area. Almost all of the routes here are easy to moderate slabs with the odd crack thrown in for variety. Despite the easier ratings the climbs here tend to have an "old school" feel to them and may seem run-out to those unaccustomed to such routes - caveat emptor.
Park in the fee parking area and hike in along a paved service road to reach the obvious west-facing "big rock". Plan on a 10-15 minute approach from the parking area.

This is the first route left of The Trough, and climbs sporty face past two bolts to a 3 bolt belay below Cheap Thrills; as an alternative you can cut left at the top and belay at the base of Mad Dogs.The climbing isn't bad but this isn't a good choice for the 5.7 leader. It's more often used as an approach pitch to the more difficult pitches above. ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
