Description 

Oasis Rock is the large formation directly behind Rat Rock and is host to a number of routes which seldom see much traffic despite the close proximity to the popular Barker Dam.

Highlights here include the nice dihedral of Winnin' Time (5.10a), the interesting face climbing on Oasis of Eden, Direct Start (5.10d) and the technical movement of Tora Bora (5.11c).

Getting There 

Skirt around the left or right side of Rat Rock depending upon the route of choice, but regardless of which way you go some scrambling/boulder hopping will be necessary.

This is a wonderful dihedral route on the top tier of the Rat Rock slabs. Climb a short ramp to where the thin crack begins and with a few delicate moves you'll reach a rest where the crack begins to widen to the hand sized finish. This route can easily be seen from the dam and can be accessed by either climbing a route on the lower tier (ie: "Rat Ledge") or walking up the ramp between the tiers from the east side of the reservoir....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
