DescriptionA great 5.5 climb in a very scenic location. Scramble to the top of a detached block. Jam the steep, vertical crack to a stance. From here the angle lays back and you follow the beautiful left arching crack until it joins a vertical crack (the top of Recollections of Pacifica). Belay from the two bolt anchor. Rappel with one rope.
LocationFollow the main trail from the road. You'll come to a wall. Traverse left a short distance to the end of the wall and then straight up talus until you reach the South Wall (about 100 feet). Go right and them up some very cool old stone stairs. Continue on until you see the large detached block and two cracks. Wafer Step is the furthest right crack.
[NOTE: I have added the following to all "Central Slabs" climbs, but the submitter's description is excellent! "This climb is on the Central Slabs; after passing the end of the Lower Wall, go up the talus and Staircase and continue right." R Hall ME Admin]
