Description

Just before reaching the Freak Brothers Dome you'll pass by this wonderfully tall sun-soaked, west-facing rock. It is host to a very nice bolted sport route and a fine crack climb as well.

It is clear that this face has not seen tremendous activity, and because of that there are some crumbly bits of rock one must be cautious of.

Trembling Toes (5.9) is a 120' bolted route with 9 bolts to a chain anchor. To the right of this, despite the name, is the enjoyable crack of Dirty Surprise (5.9). The rap anchor above Trembling Toes can be used for both routes as a decent.

 An easy and enjoyable stop while sifting along the Wonderland Valley Trail!

Getting There

Simply park at the Uncle Willie's Health Food Store lot and hike in along the Wonderland Valley Trail until it opens up with the Astro Domes to the west, and Surprise rock will be directly to the east of the valley, with the obvious Freak Brothers Dome just past it along the trail.
