Description 

This slab is separate from Fresno Dome. It's about 100 feet high and has at least 20 routes ranging from 5.2-5.11. The granite is good, and smooth, but not glacier polished. The top is accessed on the right side. This area is lower than Fresno Dome and faces south. It's can get very hot in summer.


Getting There 

Drive the Fresno Dome road for about 12 miles to a T. A sign just before the T says "Fresno Dome 2, Quartz Mountain 16, Beasore Road 6". Turn right (Road 6X10S), which is narrow dirt. Follow this for 6 tenths of a mile to a dirt pull-out. The slab is a couple minutes up-hill to the north.

The center of Willow Creek Wall, where most of the routes are. <br /> <br />Note that the top of this low-angle cliff is extremely foreshortened in this photo. There is also a weird fish-eye effect going on because I stitched two photos together to make the panorama.
