Vice Wall (East Face), Holcomb Valley Pinnacles

Description 

This free-standing pinnacle of rock has no easy way to it's summit and features a handful of crack and face routes on it's various sides. The standout routes here include Left Bandana Crack (5.8), Right Bandana Crack (5.10a) and Kodiak Arrest (5.10d).

Getting There 

Starting from a large clearing southwest of the Pistol Whipped Wall head west and then northwest along a narrow dirt road (passing an old cement foundation on the left) which leads to a large circular parking area (used for the Mushroom Boulder, Bullet Hole Wall and The Ingot). The road continues west and then southwest passing some old mines on both sides of the road, and then uphill for a section until you reach another parking area near the east side of the crag.

A difficult mantle start (5.10+) gains a crack/seam and then a small ledge. Above the ledge face climbing leads into a short section of crack and the top. This was the first and perhaps still the best route on the formation.Originally done with 3 bolts and a key RP in a seam just below the current 2nd bolt (which was added later to make it better protected). ...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
