If the steep approach hike from the parking lot didn't leave you panting, Breaking Rocks will. The opening moves are strenuous but well-protected.

Starting in an alcove left of an arete, thrash through the tough off-width to gain the crack that the off-width narrows into. Follow this steep crack to its end, then move right and up through another crack to end at a spacious ledge.


Located in the Amphitheatre section; starts about 40' right of Almost Seven in a small alcove. Rap from fixed gear rap station shared with Stab in the Dark.


Mostly small to medium pro, but bring some big gear (e.g., #5 Camalot) for the off-width.
