No overnight camping on PG&E property Details
Noticed several tents while walking into the emeralds climbing area this last weekend ( 5/20/17 ). PG&E (Pacific Gas and Electric) has posted several signs at the gate and other areas that state camping is NOT allowed. Please respect this so that access does not become an issue! Thanks in advance, Colby W.
Descriptionclimb face through overhang (crux). This climb has serious risk and shouldn't be "attempted" if you're not a confident 5.11 leader. There is a 10-12 foot run out between the 2nd and 3rd bolt--a fall very likely means decking and there's a great rock to be impaled on below. The risk is hospitalization. Not worth it if you're not confident that you can ace it. "The holds are all there," but they're not juggy 5.10 moves.
There are 2 large ledges as you ascend. Once standing on the first big ledge you have the 2nd bolt just below your foot. A fall getting onto the second ledge would be decent. Once standing on the second ledge there are a few high risk moves before the clip. You cannot slip up here.
