That this area was developed 30 years ago, and two routes we were thinking we did FA, in fact was climbed in 1982. For some reasons this cliff was omitted in 1994 guide, but was in 1987 guide book (see enclosed page)
There was no sigh of FA at all. No bolts, slings. Routes was covered with moss, dirt and poison oak.
Drive 1.2 miles from Arch Rock Entrance, pass River Bolder and park at paved pull out on river side. Cross the river and you at the base of the Cliff.
