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.
The first few moves, getting off the ground, can be a little bouldery, but the real crux is found just after the second bolt. There are a number of good side pulls and a few juggier holds throughout the route that are not easily seen, but come in handy in some of the thinner sections. All bolts can be clipped from a good clipping stance and should be within a reasonably easy reach for some of the shorter leaders. This route shares the anchor bolts with Get Out of I-ret.
This route ascends the obvious blocky arête between Kudos Left and Kudos Right. Rappel using the bolted anchor on Get Out of I-ret.
