Access Issue: No overnight camping on PG&E property
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.
P1. 5.9 (maybe 5.8). 70 feet. Follow 8 bolts up a slab to a mussy hook anchor. More of an approach pitch then a stand alone outing, but still fun. Stay close to the bolt line otherwise you'll find yourself in the uber munge. A bit dirty still but should clean up nicely.
P2. 60ish feet. About 8 feet to the right of the anchor, look for a clean, left leaning slightly overhanging hand crack. Climb that crack! Nice hand jams peter out as the crack widens. Pull yourself up and over the lip into nice jams and face holds above. Mussy hook anchor at the top.
Note: A 70 meter rope will get you to the base from the top of pitch 2, though as always, watch your rope ends! If you're using a 60m, I definitely recommend using the intermediate anchor at the top of pitch 1 to rappel. It's possible to link both pitches but be sure to bring long runners.
This route is the currently the far most right climb at The Moon/Negativity. Begins about 20 feet right of the start of Dark star. Follow the comfortable ledge at the base of this area until it ends at the cliff face, where you'll find the obvious bolt line.
P1. 8 bolts, Mussy hook anchor. P2. Single rack to 3", but it's nice to have doubles in .75"-2" if you want to sew it up
