Description [Suggest Change]
There are a handful of bolted routes (5.9 - 5.10a) that lead to the very top of the rock (about 150'). Midway anchors provide a rap station so you only need one rope. There's a mixed climb on the left (5.9+), along with another climb to the very right (5.8). There's also a 5.11 just to the left of the 5.8, but I can't recall if this is bolted or not. If not, you can climb one of the easier bolted routes and set up a TR from the midway anchors.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
The Shield of the Titans is the most apparent rock formation in this area. Its also marked by a large black streak running up the middle. There are cairns that mark a well placed trail. Please try to stay on the trail as much as possible as this area recently burned and the vegetation is still recovering.
