Description 

This is the small cliff band located under the Sanitarium Wall. The rock is still a little crunchy, but should clean up with more use. The wall receives late morning/afternoon sun making it nice on cold days but unbearable in the summer. However there is a nice pool in the river in which to keep beer cold.

Getting There 

Use the approach for the Dihedrals. Once at the Dihedrals, continue along the wall past Chossman of the Desert and Bombay on the Rocks. The wall is directly above a tree, (formerly 3 trees, but now only 1 thanks to the beavers), and split into two distinct walls by a crack system.

Start off the block next to the roof. Climb a series of good holds to the crux half way up. Technical feet on crumbling holds yields a balancy clip. Hang on for the next two bolts and it done. Good movement. Better than it looks....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
