Description 

This is a large, cleanly cleaved boulder with excellent dark grey stone that is home to a couple of excellent, albeit short routes. Lesbian Lust (5.9) and the Right Side Arete (5.10a) are the routes to do here and are well worth the 45-60 minute approach. This can be a good place to visit if the weather is cold and windy with it's lower elevation and fairly sheltered location, not unlike the Bond Boulders.


Getting There 

Park at the south parking turnout (see OZ overview for details) and head west in the wash past the turnoffs for Valley Of Voices and Emerald City. About 500 meters past the Poppie Field Boulders you'll encounter a rough section with some boulders, after which the wash levels out and becomes sandy again and opens into a broad, open valley. Turn right (heading north) and aim for some dark boulders lying at the base of a rocky hillside; the boulder is hidden for most of the approach but becomes visible when almost on it.

Start just right of a triangular cutout at the base of the rock and climb straight up the face using steep smears and tiny handholds on impeccable stone. The crux comes at about two-thirds height as you transition slightly to the right, although it stays independent of either climb all the way to the top. Somewhat reminiscent of the route Obsidian, although easier.The excellent rock and highly technical moves make this a fun route to do after warming up on Lesbian Lust or one of the other nearby...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
