Description Suggest change

This crag is probably best described by its name, except that there appears to be 4 cracks. Too much THC? This is a small crag in the vicinity of the Blob Massif, Bitty Buttress area, Voodoo Wall, which is lower & closer to the road. It is probably worth a visit if short on time, low on motivation, or if you're a wanderer. 4 one-pitch, intermediate routes here on less-than-perfectly-beautiful rock sum up this crag.

L->R these are:

A. Far Left, 9, 1p, gear.

B. Catalyst, 9, 1p, gear.

C. Hesitation, 10-, 1p, gear.

D. Mirage, 9+, 1p, gear.

E. Reach For It, 9-, 1p, 95', gear.

F. SC Face Area, 7+ PG-13, 1p, 90', gear.

G. Short Climb with Intermittent Cracks, 6, 1p, 90', gear.

H. B-Line For The Tree Line, 7, 1p, 90', gear.

I. Get Over Yourself, 7 PG-13, 1p, 90', gear.

J. It's Just Rock Climbing , 8 PG-13, 1p, 90', gear.

Getting There Suggest change

On the north side of the creek. Park in the lot for Cob Rock; the Cliff is to the north, below Bitty Buttress (or down and right from East Blob Rock). Head for East Blob Rock, and about 2/3 of the way up, follow the footpath to the right. You should run right into the cliff.
