This sunny crag, actually the other side of The Orc Wall in Steve Canyon, is host to a number of fun routes with a quick, easy approach. Season Opener (5.8), Watanobe Wall (5.10a) and Come-n-Do-Me (5.10b) are all popular routes here.
Most easily approached by parking along Park Boulevard in any of several paved pullouts adjacent to the rock and following trails to the base of your chosen crag. The approach takes from 5-10 minutes usually.

At the top the climbing is runout just a shave at the 5.7/8 level....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
