Description 

The Quarry is a South facing crag with routes 270 degrees around it. On the West side and up the hill is the West facing Waffle Wall, which seques into the Quarry wall on the South face. To the right and facing East is the For Real Wall, and further uphill The Solarium and The Cooler. Between the Waffle Wall and the Quarry Wall on the West side is a black streak, our reference point and site of a five bolt 5.12 called "Not Even"


Getting There 

Off the old road and up the first cairned trail lie two major formations. The Quarry is the left of the two, and the trail at the base of the cliffs will take you right to it.

Anyone know what this climb is? Starts on Undertow (?) jumps up onto the thin slab past bolts, back into the undertow dihedral above and to the two bolt anchor. Either way, Bob is crushing it here.
