DescriptionThe summit has 3 small bouldering areas.
Getting ThereFrom top of west chimney:
Near top of chimney, pass a nice 5.4 hand crack on left. At top of chimney is flat open area. From here, there are 3 small climbing areas each with 1 or 2 problems.
From flat area:
1. Walk east/south to short 6' drop, and go down. A nice traverse starts on the right side of the drop and wraps around and then goes up a face. The right side of the face has a easy 5.1 downclimb chimney. Around on the right side is a large boulder. On the inside south face is a 5.9 dihedral.
2. From the 6' drop above, proceed around the to the left. Continue around a second corner on the left with a 4th Class move until you are on a slab. There are two great crack climbs boulder problems: a 5.9, short, stout one on the left and another taller highball problem on the right at 5.8.
Before going around the second corner is a 30' tall 5.3 OW that is okay, it's above the cave.
3. From flat area at top of entrance chimney, proceed left north past a large dead juniper. Drop down 5' and past a small boulder and then down again. To your right is a great V4 traverse that starts on the left where the chalk is under a small overhang and finishes with two dynos and back up the 5' drop.
Another 5.7 crack climb is on the 30' right before entering where the boulder and 5' drop are.
