BETA PHOTO: Stone Wall, Holcomb Valley Pinnacles.
This is a more recently developed formation, and one of the better finds, with a small but good selection of long, well-protected routes, several of which are among the best of their grades for the area.
Visible from the upper parking area as a non-descript, jumbled-looking wall, which belies the quality climbing it affords. Highlights here include the long and varied Vertical Epic (5.10a) and the overhanging goodness of Arrogant Bastard (5.11a).
Well worth the short walk not only for the quality climbing, but for the lack of traffic more common in the more popular areas of the Pinnacles.
Routes listed from left to right:
Old Guardian (5.10b)
Vertical Epic (5.10a)
Arrogant Bastard (5.11a)
From the upper parking area (near Wilbur's Tombstone etc.) walk north along the dirt approach road and then cut left along a faint trail to reach the base of the wall. The approach takes all of five minutes.

It ends on a spacious ledge with anchors and great view of the surrounding area. Perhaps the best route of it's grade at the Holcomb Valley Pinnacles....[more] Browse More Classics in CA

Yes - they make good beer.
Although to truly appreciate an IPA you have to drink it after it's been sitting in a steamer cargo hold for a 2-month journey to India, followed by another month across the dusty plains of India, followed by a 2-week trip up to the northwest frontier....
