This alcove features the highest concentration of difficult routes on the sunny side of Woodford's Canyon. With one pure sport climb, one mixed climb, and several classic traditional test-pieces the High Caliber Corridor has something for everyone. The east-facing climbs get sun early while the south-facing routes stay sunny longer.

Getting There 

From the flat white boulder 30 yards beneath the 2nd Alcove (Whisker Biscuit area) walk right (east) on a trail heading towards a rocky ridge. Before the ridge, locate a 40 ft. pine tree that marks the approach to the Toprope Wall as well as the base of the High Caliber Corridor. The climbs are directly above; some start above the fourth class step, some below. The bolted arete is Mr. Personality (5.12a).

Thin pro combined with difficult moves probably make this the technical crux of the climb.Chapter Two:Move easily up to a se...[more]   Browse More Classics in California

Does anyone know about the bolted route just to the right of Mr. Personality and the the right of Pigeons on the Roof? It follows a pretty obvious shallow crack with four bolts and a pretty good sized runout to the fourth.

urs, that's The Prude (5.12). It's a mixed climb, so bring gear (and guns!). FA Dan Kennedy
