Closed, on private property. Details
"The property has been sealed up and they put up about 40 no trespassing signs... the cops [and the owner of] St Helena Hospital, are VERY serious about the 'No Trespassing.' I guess there is a well here now that supplies all the water for the hospital." - Jason Stewart, May 2015
DescriptionClimb up a short, somewhat loose face, lieback left underneath and then up the left edge of a large flake, and finish on an offwidth crack. The climbing is good but none of the anchor options are appealing.
LocationOn the right side of the main face of the crag, just left of where the rock becomes broken up.
ProtectionThree bolts plus a large cam (2-3") for the offwidth crack. There is a double-bolt anchor with chains on the outer edge of the block, but it looks like weighting it could pull off the block, which would probably be fatal. Instead continue upward and belay off one of several small trees at the top of the crag. It's best to belay your partner up and then rappel down off of a tree.
