The Scrutinizer Rock Climbing
Also known as the Central Scrutinizer. The Scrutinizer stays shady in the winter due to the huge cliffs across the way. Access couldn't be much easier -- just walk up and down the aqueduct to find your route. There is a large bulge on the left side and a cave right in the middle of the crag.
This east-facing wall showcases some excellent one and two-pitch routes. All of the routes are easily accessible from the road making this an excellent location for an end-of-day climb. Jeff Jackson likens this wall to 'a belly replete with navel.'
East-facing crag right above the aqueduct past the pool complex on the right side of the road.
This wall is located about 100' to the right of Black Cat Bone on La Selva. Belays for all routes are from the aqueduct located on the right-hand side of the road (as you enter Potrero).
