Climbing limited to areas below observation deck. Details


A spectacular overhanging lieback. Start by scrambling up to a ledge about 15 ft up. Follow the finger crack as it gradually becomes overhung, until reaching the top. A challenging variation continues right once reaching the top, and requires a pro placement just before sending the roof (5.10b).


Number 1 in order from the left(north) to right(south) end of the crag, as it appears facing the rock from the base.


Top rope using trees above for anchors or pro to 2.5 inch.


CAN NOT CLIMB THIS ROUTE DUE TO CURRENT RESTRICTIONS....None of the climbs below the observation area can currently be climbed unless you have a permit from A.N.F. There is a substantial fine if you are caught. (I spoke to a forest ranger and he was very adamant about this) Aug 1, 2013

This route actually doesn't fall under the Forest Service restriction for climbing and/or rappelling at rim Rock. The only routes affected are those which lie directly under the man-made railings at the top of the overlook. The routes affected are:
Billboard (5.11a)
Leap of Faith (5.10b)
The Nose (5.10c) Mar 4, 2014
