Private Property Details
The approach road (County Road 411/Trail Lake Road) runs through private land on an easement from the Whiskey Basin wildlife reserve to the public campground at the head of Ring Lake. It is illegal to leave the road without permission from the landowners in this area except for the boat ramp at Torrey Lake provided on a goodwill basis.
Description"Nothin' shakin' on Shakedown Street, used to be the heart of town."
This is a direct route from the ground to the rappel tree and was climbed as a "shakedown" in anticipation of future, harder routes on this rock. From below the rappel tree, climb up broken 4th class ledges which gradually steepen. Climb through a vertical black section below and left of the dead tree (the short crux). This rock is black because of water that runs down it, so some of the holds are slippery. The pro is great and the moves interesting, but the "hard" part is rather short. Rap from the tree.
