Jerad Friedrichs in the Slowdance/Gleaner Area. No...
A great place to get started.
One of the first major areas on the approach, it's pretty popular on hot days as the shade is abundant. Large boulders with a variety of climbing are found here from short steep and powerful, to low-angle traverses and sketchy highballs.
Hike up the trail for 5-10 minutes. When you enter the canyon and the trail flattens out, it dips down a little and the large, dark boulders will be hugging the right side of the trail. The Slow Dance Cave faces the East Rim and cannot be seen from the main trail. Walk between the boulders where you will see the Corner Boulder perched just up-slope from the Slow Dance Cave.

A tuff bouldering classic: powerful, yet technical, and immensely satisfying. Grab the pumice banana and a small right crimp and pull a couple steep moves to the big sloper. Keep it tight for a radical sequence through the large dish to a gaston, and finally, a baseball-sized pocket and the huge shelf. Beautiful.(Word has it the starting pinch and a crucial foot have been steadily disintegrating over time, so step lightly and/or get this done quick.)...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
