This is a cliff stacked with quality lines that more than make up for the somewhat lengthy (especially by Josh standards) approach. The rock is typically of exceptional quality with dark patina throughout and the cracks are often parallel, deep and smooth - none of that light-colored grain so common in the rest of the Park!

It is prudent to stick clip the first bolt before stepping onto the steep face. Sustained face climbing past six bolts on fine patina brings the climber to cruxy moves that gain the short finger/hand crack. A few challenging moves in the crack lead to the top....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
