BETA PHOTO: a nice little walk
The Natural Light Wall is on a crag about 25 minutes walk away from the stirrup tank parking lot. It is southwest facing and sees the sun for most of the day. It's a quiet area where it would be rare to see another group, and there is a few established routes in the vicinity in the moderate range, but there looks like there is potential for more, both sport and trad. Equipped with nice scenery and a comfortable staging spot, the area is perfect place to bring the wall's namesake beverage.
From the stirrup tank parking lot loop, head west about a half mile, walking on the north side of the crags down the dry river bed/wash. When you get to the gap in the crags, hook a left (southeast-ish) and you're about 700 yards away. Stay to the right (east) side of the valley and you should stumble upon it.

Getting past the last bolt does take an effort, but it's more straight forward than the bottom crux. If you get scared at the top, you can always go out right and still finish out to the top.The way off ...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
