Description

Good quality rock with a few climbs that range from 5.8 to 5.12. Area gets shade all day and is usually less crowded if you want to get away from the people. It's a good place to climb if you are adventurous enough to visit the Pinnacles during the summer months.

Getting There

Park in eastern parking lot. Walk to the reservoir and take climbers' trail up to the wall just after crossing the dam. Solid climbs, well protected, and totally topropable.
