Description 

This newest additon to the Quarry greatly expands the moderate route offerings with many routes 5.10 and under. Routes here tend to be vertical to slightly overhanging in nature, fairly short and to the point with many featuring "interesting" holds.

Due to it's south-facing location and shelter from the wind this is the warmest spot in the Quarry - perfect for those cold winter days.

Getting There 

Just left of the Agony Arch Area on the south face of the Quarry.

Climbs up on natural and manufactured holds up the right facing ramp/crack system. Lots of different fun movements make this climb the best at the quarry for the grade. The crux lies a little bit after the 5th bolt where it joins up with the climb to the right. To clean it top rope the other end up and un-clip as you go. Anchors are shared with the 5.9 to the right so you can setup a toprope for that climb via this route. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
