The massive slab and prow sitting above the California 5.12. Gets all day sun for most of the season.
Approach as for California 5.12, continue past it, and turn uphill at a large, aesthetic boulder. 15-20 minutes from the parking area.

Not sure the existing routes justify the approach. Soft poor quality sandstone is what we found. Did see some potential moderate terrain on better and sounder rock on the way out. Definitely bring 3 or 4 over the shoulder runners for these routes in addition to draws. This face is all day exposed to sun.

I'm sure people learning will be stoked to have some bolted 8's. Thanks Mike!

My pleasure! That being said, these are young routes that have seen very VERY few ascents, and so they still need to be cleaned a bit. Hopefully some new routes'll be going in soon!

Finally got around to camoing the bolt hangers.

These routes will be great easy additions to the area once they're cleaned a bit more. For now, take care to choose the non-breakable holds.

Fun climbing! Cleaned some of the holds today (sorry to anyone below us!)
