Space Wall has some very cool long sport climbs on weathered granite. The routes are well-protected, moderately challenging and all high-quality. Besides one 5.9, the rest of the climbs are 10+ to 12a.
Park at the Peanut Gallery parking lot. The approach path starts about 20 feet left of the lot (if you were facing uphill). It begins with a steep climb up off the road (~10 ft) then traverses through Manzenita bushes uphill and to the right. The path comes across a stream-bed (will be dry in the later summer) and continues up and right, above the peanut gallery. Continue on this relatively flat path to the right until you spot a Cairn just to the right of a tree. Go around the right side of the tree atop a small cliff, and then downclimb a class 3 slab to reach the base.

Made in Japan is a long vertical climb that begins on the blunt arete on the main face of Space Wall. It first uses a finger crack before finding its way past a series of flakes to some technical face moves before finally turning the arete and finishing on some easier slabby granite.Some of the large flakes are a little loose and will probably fall off one day. I recommend getting on the route before that happens because Made in Japan isn't worth missing....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
