DescriptionCurrently, there is a trail that leads from the north side of the parking lot through a significant weakness in the ridgeline immediately west of the pay station in the middle of the parking lot. South of this break, the first climbable part of the ridgeline is the Exit Wall. This entry includes climbs from the Exit Wall (northern boundary) to the Ship's Prow (southern boundary).
While Rotary's freestanding boulders are home to most of the classic lines in the area, the ridgeline offers many fun easy climbs and a few more challenging problems. The highlight of the Central Ridgeline is the Ship's Prow, a distinct formation easily identifiable for its unique shape and the striking, heavily chalked Curving Crack. As many as eight or nine lines can be put together on the Ship's Prow, ranging in difficulty from V-easy to V6.
Getting ThereFrom the parking area, follow the well-worn trail south around the end of the ridgeline, passing the Cat's Eye Face. Once you're beneath the tall, well-featured Bolt Wall, the Ship's Prow should be clearly visible about 35 yards to the north. The bulk of the climbs in this entry are on the Prow; any climbs not on the Prow are located on the ridgeline immediately north.
