This is another stacked crag in the Central Gorge that is a good cold weather destination (obviously, it gets sun). It is home to the popular Sendero Luminoso, as well as an assortment of other high quality climbs.

Weather station 18.5 miles from here

This is the righthand of two lines that I believe share the same anchor. Climb up the somewhat insecure, right-leaning wide crack to the first clip (a bit spicy) and then begin working up a series of...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
