Description 

This seldom visited portion of Tahquitz is located on the far left side of the rock and is fairly slabby with the exception of the Y Crack Buttress. Routes here range in length from 1-2 pitches in length.

Routes to do here include Last Grapes (5.9), The Y Crack (5.10b), My Pink Half of the Drainpipe (5.10b), Birdman (5.11b) and The Green Rosetta (5.11c).


Getting There 

The best approach/descent is via the North Fork trail, but it's possible to traverse left along the base from any point on the rock if already up there.

This is an excellent one-pitch hand crack, with sustained difficulty and great protection on good rock. I climbed it via the left start (recommended by others). The crux section (just above the junction of the two starts) has mostly good jams a slight overhang to the wall and an awkward right lean to the crack make it difficult. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
