Access Issue: Rebolting Complete! Details
CA State Parks officially reopened Big Rock to public access April 28th, 2018. After months of effort 53 anchors and 232 bolts have been upgraded to 1/2" X 2.75" stainless steel Powers 5-piece bolts and rings.
This area is the upper wall that faces the standard Big Rock descent. There are five short routes here, four bolted and one top-rope. The rock is of course the same as on the main wall of Big Rock, but the routes here are quite steep by comparison. Therefore, these routes focus on balance and fine edging, not the smearing that defines most of the routes on the main wall. These routes are seldom done and offer a nice escape if the main wall is crowded.
To access the Sundeck area, either hike up the descent trail on the north (left) side of the slab, climb one of the routes between English Hanging Gardens and Northwest Passage, or climb one of the long routes to the top of Big Rock, taking the standard descent to the low-angle slab in front of this upper wall.
