Jed Porter on the "fist crack" route at ...
A stepped and broken granite cliff-band. This area has a growing number of winter rock climbs. Routes here are being established in "dry-tool" style, but local ethics seem to allow for whatever style you choose. Climbs in this area are generally short (less than 30m) and lower angle than your typical magazine-photo "M" climbing experience. With crowded ice up-canyon, development in this area will give steel-clad climbers more options. Not to mention the value of a well-rounded alpine charger being comfortable scratching around on granite. Check it out!
Route ratings as suggested here are very tentative. I mean, what do us Cali climbers know about dry-tooling? Someone who knows something might tell us we're all wrong. Same with star assignments.
Development so far should be credited to Ian M, Thomas G, Luke L. and Jed P.
Follow the ice climbing approach from Poole Power Plant towards Chouinard Falls etc. These dry-tooling crags form the right wall of "the narrows", about half-way to the ice.

From there follow a discontinuous seam and nine bolts to a bolted chain anchor at 90 feet.This route was bolted top down by Luke Lydiard with help from McKenzie Long and Chance Traub...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
