Description 

Struggler is another short dome-like cliff along the west side of the N. Fork of the Consumnes river. It boasts many easy topropes on knobby faces along with a couple of off-width cracks. Everything is easily top roped from the bolts atop the cliff.

Getting There 

From the road, follow the main trail downhill, through Dinkum Gully until you're to the bottom of Buck's Bar Dome. From here, the trail splits. Take the right fork and in about 30 feet you'll be below a 20 foot cliff. This is struggler. It is clearly identified by its two wide cracks.

Offwidth just wider than stacked fists at the bottom, but not wide enough for a good kneebar. Getting up to the lip is the hardest part, then stay in the crack for continued groveling lessons, working your way back and up at the same time.
