Ron Andersons photo of the Cracker Cliff
3.5 miles up hill from woodfords intersection, and .9 of a mile below the hope valley store is the Apron, a visable crag that sets 200 feet or so off the highway on the north side of the canyon. One of the first crags to see activity as it was the closest and most obvious of the roadway crags. Granite varies from grainy to excellent. Cracker cliff is just up to the north behind the apron, and the large boulder in the trees to the west is "henrys Unit" with several problems. There are a mix of trad and sport routes between cracker and the Apron.

: ... : The Apron
just right of an old unfinished bolt ladder on the south face of the apron is the overhanging dihederal and crack. 5.6 up to the crack, which is nailed via a3 expando nailing to a 5.7 mantle off of it to the left near the top which is awkward! Beware of the EXPANDO nature of the HUGE block!...[more] Browse More Classics in CA
