Open, with restrictions: Park on the street Details
Do not drive into the Quarry. You will be ticketed $150 for trespassing. Climbing access is open, just park on the street.
DescriptionThis route is essentially a link-up of two existing routes, but it does climb some new terrain and is one the easier offerings in the immediate vicinity.
Climb Shattered Dreams for it's first two bolts and then cut sharply left into a nice steep hand crack. Work up into an alcove formed by stacked blocks and then into a high undercling. Power over the bulge on reachy jugs and then run it out a little on easier ground to join Peter Principle for it's last two bolts and anchors.
It's possible to cut right to the anchors on Shattered Dreams as well, but you'll be making the finishing mantle quite far from your last bolt while looking at a bad fall onto a ledge.
Steep, athletic and fun climbing at a moderate grade make this a nice warm-up for the area. Note: it's advised to clip the 2nd and 3rd bolt with long draws to lessen any possible rope drag.
