DescriptionA great wall that is getting more and more attention as Grassi is crowded by the weekend-warrior crowd, so is echo and there is good climbing to be done in the shade and in the sun all day. Also, with a 30-45 minute approach this sector is nice to have handy and has some good options for two pitch routes. There are many interesting climbs and has a bit of everything (5.5-12a; single and multipitch; crimps, slopers, slab, face and crack).
The way to know if you are there is you look up and there is this giant corner system that hosts a very good crack-type face climb on bolts after an initial slab. This route is called Prime Cut (middle, 10c) or Outer limits (arete, 12a). The approch pitch on the slab is called Cosmic String and is worth doing if 5.8 is your jam, 70m rope require but two stations on this climb make it easy for even the shorties out there.
This wall is also across from a wall that has a North west aspect called "red eye cove (climber's right side)" and "Caribbean (climber's left, up the hill)" which are better on hot days until your climb gets into the shade.
