Several buttresses separated by cracks, there are a couple of decent face climbs, a few decent moderate cracks and a spectacular roof climb (Under the Influence 5.12c).

Expansive views and sunny disposition makes this a great spring and fall hang out.

Getting There 

Can either be approached from the North Side by heading to the right and low (if facing the rock). Or from the clearing at the end of the road keeping low and left.

Up and onto a big hold at the bottom of the face (first bolt). Tenuously now past 2 more bolts, with nice moves on great rock up to the crux, trend slightly right to the horizontal break (cam if you want), up onto the break and finish the slab above (bolt), then step left and finish up Harlan Pepper to its anchors.At bolt number three it's possible to use good holds on the left to bypass the crux, this reduces the grade to 5.8....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
