Close to the road/parking lot with a short 5 minute approach.
On the easier low angled face are some good beginner routes and around the far side of the dome is an overhanging face with several quality harder routes. Standout routes would include Do or Fly (5.11c), Horseshoes and Hand Grenades (5.12a) and Grenade Launcher (5.12c).

Getting There 

Drive to the Permit center and park in the parking lot. Near the Southwest corner look for a trail, you can see the dome straight ahead of you.

This is the aesthetic right leaning splitter to the right of Do or Fly. Easy climbing leads to the crux, slightly overhanging thin hand jams and ring locks. After that you get good finger locks for about ten feet which then leads into wide hand jams up to the top. Belay off the tree. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
