Clip first bolt from the ground then start to the right on the obvious flake. Climb up and right to the some amazing jug cobbles. At the fourth bolt grab a very comfy knee bar on a tufa feature get everything back before makeing a powerful sprint through rad pockets, edges and drop knees to the anchor. This thing builds and Last move might get you. A lil dirty at the bottom but gets better at the third bolt. Steeper than it looks....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

The Wave Wall goes into the shade in the afternoon.

Scramble across the rockpool in front of the Ghetto and head left. You should run into Kim Chi and behind that a fixed rope leading up a rock. Continue following a trail of fixed rope up a dirty path.

Pretty good wall. A bit dirty, but it should clean up. You'll have the place to yourself guaranteed.

Sweet wall! The approach will make you work for it but, super rewarding to get up to the wall. Goes into the shade eventually but you will get a solid tan going! All the routes are fun and make you work for them. More comparable to Mt. Gorgeous type of holds and rock feel as compared to ghetto. Saw 1 spinner the whole time. Make a trip up here for sure.
