Description

Reef #1 is a small rock that holds 4 bolted routes on its west face. Each route gets progressively harder from left to right, ranging from 5.7 to hard 5.10. The routes are approximately 50 feet high, and end at a set of fixed anchors. Also, a toprope could be set by running up a gully on its north side.
Check NPS for Closures Details

Getting There

Walk to the old road that is next to the signin for South Seas. Take a left and follow it a short ways, passing rocks on your right. When the road starts curving away to the left, take a right on a small trail which leads right to Reef #1. Look for a crack/gully feature with bolts leading above it - this is Old Number 8.

Which route is old number 8? There are four climbs on this rock. Does anybody know if old number 8 is to the right or left of the crack in the middle of the rock, or what the fourth route on this face is called? Oct 17, 2003

Running up a gully is a bit of an understatement. There are some moves of exposed 4th class at the top, but nothing unreasonable to do unroped. The 4th class descent is on the left side of the formation around the corner from Way Cool Junior. Jul 17, 2002
