start in deepish water, start on slopers to a beached whale mantle, then climb left onto a ledge. Climb right leaning crack on jugs into a cool handjam sequence then exit out on jugs to a scary topout. Theres poison oak at the top of the crack, which i will be removing soon. super easy, scary fun climb.


20 feet to the left of circle of trust, perfect dihedral going up acid rock, a popular river jump spot.


Deep water start, safe for about the first 10-15 feet of crack, with a committing topout high above submerged rocks


Spent many summer days hanging out in my youth there (It was our summertime high school party hangout) We climbed all over those rocks for miles up and down the river, floating down and finding rocks to jump off of. Including climbing up the line shown. Jumped off of that rock (Acid Rock) more than a 100 times in the 70"s and early 80s. We were not looking for bouldering lines per say, just goofing around barefoot. Lots of hard (super slick) bouldering potential that probably has not been explored though.
An interesting, HUGE diversion tunnel bored straight through the granite (back in the Gold Rush era) is under the mountain behind that cliff, and comes out just below Acid Rock. Aug 13, 2015
Yeah dude my dad said he hung out there a lot during high school, and he mentioned that there were some larger cliffs there i didnt expect it to have so much potential Aug 14, 2015
