Description 

While not at tall or sunny as the popular south face of the formation the north face offers a handful of routes in the 5.10 to 5.11 range for the adventurous climber. Highlights here include the technical thin crack of Take It For Granite (5.10c) and Silver Lining (5.11c) with it's thin face climbing on excellent rock.


Getting There 

Drive east past Echo Tee for about 0.5 miles along the Bighorn Pass Road, as if heading to Barker Dam, and park in any of several turnouts. From here a marked trail heads south along the edge of the hillside to the formation. Plan on 10-20 minutes approach depending upon your hiking speed.

This stupendous steep face climb on dark gray varnish begins on a large platform at the base of a north facing rectangular block across from the Mary Worth Buttress. Balancy moves at the start lead to the first of five bolts. Sustained climbing gains the crux above the fifth bolt. A short hand crack past the crux ends at the top. Easily 3 out of 5 stars....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
