Description

As the name implies, this is one of the more accesible walls at NJC, and is impressive for it's steep south face that looks something akin to a breaking wave of stone.

Routes on the main (south) face range from 5.11a to 5.12d and tend to be fairly steep with mostly good holds that require some technique and bouldering skills. There are a couple of easier lines (5.7 and 5.9) on the backside (north-facing) for those who find the main face a bit much.

Clumsy (5.12a), Lost In The Middle (5.12b) and You Get What You Deserve (5.12d) are some of the better routes on this wall.

Getting There

Pass the White Face on your left (if coming from the highway) and continue south towards the main area until a sizeable formation appears on your left - this is the Roadside Crag.

There is a couple of good boulder problems around the corner to the left of Clumsy about 20'. There is also a hard boulder traverse called the "Hatred". The "Hatred" starts at "Clumsy" and goes to the right, passing the cave area, past Propaganda and ends by downclimbing a move or two on "You Get What You Deserve" to the ground.
