BETA PHOTO: The Alcove, Riverside Quarry
Located just right of the (m) Taboo Area
which makes this the farthest right portion of the Quarry's main face, and while quite tall in spots it tapers off at the far right side as it merges into the surrounding hillside.
Routes here tend to be fairly long (up to 22 bolts) and range in difficulty from 5.10a to 5.13b, although the majority are in the 5.12-5.13 range due to the sustained nature of the climbing.
Recommended routes here include Shwazzle Dazzle
(5.11c), Hand Me Down (5.12a), Toothless Tweaker (5.12c), Ghetto Fabulous (5.12c/d), Hands of Time (5.13a), Fractional Envy (5.13a) and Tweaker (5.13b).
Hike right past the (m) Taboo Area
to the last major portion of cliff on the far right.

Located on the far right side of The Alcove and identified as a left-facing corner system that starts up high - this is currently the third route from the right. Some scrambling is required to reach the base, but once there a nice sheltered spot exists to belay. An awkward mantle past the first bolt gains entry into the tiered corner system where jamming skills are a plus. The so-so climbing in the middle of the route is redeemed by the wild and suprisingly exposed feeling crux at the last bolt....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
