Access Issue: 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.

climb face/cracks then traverse top to anchors over left. In Mike Carville's 1991 guide book this was a top rope climb. It is now bolted.

left side of wall. See Emeralds main page. (Photos) This climb starts on the left and at the 4th bolt it crosses "Sunburn" and goes Right to top where it shares top anchors with "Sun Burn". The climb is 10c if you traverse in from the bottom from the left.
