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.

Crack and face moves up the middle of the slab. Difficulties are usually around bolts and are well protected. An obvious flake marks the start of this climb that is longer than it looks.Apparently there are two pitches following the first, but I only did the first. They are described as Pitch 2: 5.8 and Pitch 3: 5.9, both protected similarly to the first pitch....[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.
