Description 

This is where the hiker's trail ends. Just below the railing at the top of the peak, towards the 79 are the Sierra Club RCS railng routes. A good warmup for the day. Crowds will gawk and may throw stuff down on you or even play with your anchor if you turn your back. Rock is solid.

Getting There 

Follow approach to Stonewall Peak. Head down below the railing from just before the top of the peak.

20 feet right of the Stonewall Squeeze is a large crack system starting from an alcove. Move up the left crack systems to a bolt and pin belay used on the first ascent. Continue up passing one bolt and over the roof on thin holds, belaying at the top of the Little Dihedral. No reason why this route can't be done in one pitch....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
