Start off a large ledge that runs along the base of this portion of wall and climb well-protected steep smears on well-featured tan rock to a bolted anchor/rap station.Good climbing, but unfortunately lacking the more appealing dark patina that's characteristic of the routes further up the canyon. A worthwhile route to get your balance and friction mind together on in relative safety....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

An obvious easy walk-up just up-canyon from Swiss Cheese gives access to the entire lower half of the wall if you want to set a TR.
