BETA PHOTO: Struggler Cliff overview
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.
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.
