Description

Friable cliff band with a purple hue. Huge potential for those willing to do some cleaning.

From Carbon Junction, take La Posta Road. Park in any of the pull-outs below the cliffs. Twenty minutes will take one to the cliff's base.

Comparatively speaking, the yellowish rock on the right side of the cliff band is of a less friable nature. Jun 18, 2009

Good to know you're still at work ferreting out the chossiest climbable rock in the Dgo area. I would love to hear if anyone actually repeats this. BTW, Julia's Outcrop in b'ham is quite good. Jul 6, 2009
