Description

The Wedge is a prominent pinnacle just southwest of Cunning Rock, north of the road, and about half way between Jumbo Rocks campground and Live Oak Picnic area. It was the scene of some early JT climbing. The rock is very coarse.

Getting There

It can be easily seen (and approached) from the road.

There are at least 5 or 6 new sport routes, most with bolted anchors, that have gone up in this area in the last month or two. The rock is gritty, and may or may not clean up with subsequent ascents. The routes tend to follow angling dikes or flaring chimneys, and are decent fun. I do not know the names, FA, or ratings, but most felt in the 5.10-11 range. Explore and enjoy. Very sunny and warm for the colder days. Nov 26, 2011
