Description 

The last and farthest group of boulders on the canyon floor before the bend, just before the 'Slight Inducement Area'. The 'Serengeti Boulder' is the large lone boulder sitting in middle of the flat canyon floor. This area offers great warm-ups, highballs, traverses, and moderates with short, steep hueco and pocket-ridden faces.

Getting There 

Walk up the canyon passing the Savannah Area and you'll soon see this area. The Serengeti Boulder is easily recognized with its impressive south face.

Karma V6+ 7A  CA : Sierra Eastside : ... : Karma Alcove
The obvious line up the overhanging flat prow on the right side of the alcove. Start with both hands in the horizontal crack between the lower boulder and the upper prow. Reach up and left to a shallow pocket. Heel hook and Slap up to the lip and then go left to a jug and then to the top on more good holds. A direct finish is also possible, maybe a bit easier. Going right and then up the corner and then finishing on the direct line is easier, maybe V4/V5....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
