Really the leftmost extension of the Tioga Cliff. Great granite featured unlike other stuff in the area. Great face routes with a good crack or two. Popular with eastside locals.

Getting There 

Follow the directions for the Tioga Cliff. Continue hiking past the steep, sport bolted, chain-drawed project land of the Tioga Cliff to the far left end, walk down a small talus slope with a faint trail to the next cliffband.

Awesome fun mixed crack/face/arete route, great warmup for the steeper stuff on the Tioga Cliff. This route was retrobolted summer of 09 and quite safe. Starts with a single bolt below a finger crack, climbs the short finger crack, then busts out awesome moves onto the nice arete above. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

This cliff may be unsafe/closed at the moment. It seems that a power line/station is being installed at the top of the cliff.

I saw a helicopoter drop the first round of parts/gear on 8/12/2012

Time will tell.
