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.
DescriptionEasy stemming, fingers, hands, layback moves through the dihedral leads to a massive ledge with a tree. Crack goes on 15-20 feet above that on what looks like 5.6 climbing (no bolted anchors). This would be an easy 5.9 trad lead if you're bothering to carry gear. There are plenty of good rests and gear is straightforward.
Alternatively, you can lead Push to Open or Closed for Lunch set up a top rope using the top two bolts on Closed for Lunch as directional pieces. This is a good way to eke out a 5th climb on this wall.
Overall, the climb is still pretty sandy/grainy and could use more traffic. Not nearly as nice as the other climbs on the wall, but its something different.
