High quality overhanging climbing on the right flank of School Rock.

Stays shady most of the day.

Getting There 

Park at School Rock and walk right on the PCT. After passing a low overhanging wall with a short bolted line, split left up a climber's trail. Stay above some short (30') slabs and walk along the base.

Cookie Mix is a mosaic of the Summit's finest feat...

Cookie Mix 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  CA : Tahoe Vicinity : ... : South Star Wall
This is an incredibly fun climb. Start on cool slopey edges and jugs down low. Move into a neat crux then up and around a roof to a sweet slab move. Find the jugs and work into the beautiful golden dihedral. Exit onto steep blocky jugs and use good footwork to pull the final roof out to a small headwall and finally the anchors. Superb movement calling for a variety of techniques in a stunningly aesthetic location. Have fun!...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

All in situ carabiners are now upgraded to quality steel bent gates thanks to a very generous and motivated local. No more sharp edged junk carabiners on entire wall. This is a huge improvement in safety. Thank you!
