A sunny area, although the large pine trees can provide shade depending on the time of day. The crag in and of itself is secluded and since there is much climbing in this area, you will never have to wait in line to climb. The rock here is volcanic with many pockets, also the rock tends to be pretty rough so friction is abundant.
From the parking lot head up the climbers trail at the fork bear left (towards Potato Patch) Stoned Wheat Thin Cliff is the very tall (200+feet) cliff on your right.

A 70-meter rope will lower you to the first bolt of the route, from where you can downclimb to the ground. Thos...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
