That's Table Rock!
While the rock is unfortunately a bit on the soft / chossy side, it features an amazing variety of pockets, crimpers, and jugs on terrain ranging from slab to wild overhangs.
Take The Table Rock Overlook Trail out of the SW side of the South Lot (gps N 38.39.155 W122.35.961). This trail winds uphill for about 1.0 mile towards the Overlook. Prior to reaching the overlook at 0.5 Miles in you will see a trail marker showing you to turn right and is reassuring you that you are on the right trail!
When you get to the marker, stay true to the trail by going right up more switchbacks to the Overlook. Once there, head down and left into the valley. You will pass a small stone walkway maze thing that is kind of funny. Keep going down. Eventually you will reach a small more flat area where the trail bends right and becomes a bit smaller. Follow this down hill further. You will shortly pass a small formation on your right, which may eventually contain routes. Keep going down. At the 2nd small formation, the trail will bend sharp left, at this point you will want to go right around the north side of the rocks. There is another option to continue to follow the TR trail to the top and scramble down one of the gullies to the face.
Once you head to the right, follow the obvious trail that crosses Garnet Creek then heads down towards another section of the creek. Once down, head right paralleling the creek over a small rock outcrop, THEN, cross the stream and pick up the old road on
the other side. Recently this road was signed as no trespassing, but climbers have not run into any trouble. Please make sure you close the gate! If this access closes, then continue on the Table Rock trail to top of crag and scramble down one of the gullies on the left side of the cliff (easy 3rd class).
Follow the road till a right bend. To head up to the The Cave, scramble up the slope then follow the small trail up to the base. It crosses a small gully while traversing West. To go directly to the Iron Curtain (gps N38.38.577 W122.34.969) and other downhill walls, keep on the road for another 200 yards until a pipe is seen. Head uphill here and then traverse back and forth up to the wall. Total Hike : ~2 miles / Takes about 1 hour each way.
