Rico on the knobs. You can continue up to the top...


This south-east facing alcove hosted many single and multi-pitch cracks in bullet stone. It may take up to an hour to approach so you're not likely to see another party up there. It receives AM sun but goes into the shade fairly early during the winter

Getting There 

There are several ways to approach depending on your other agendas.
1)Traverse right from High Caliber Corridor to a short 3rd/ easy 4th class 2) Scramble west in between First Crux and Red Pillar (or climb the pillar), or 3) hike up to Toprope Wall and cut left and around.

This obvious splitter only presents itself once you have hiked your crew all the way into the heart of the Main Alcove. Once you see it, you know at least one of you has to climb it... It is just too good not to.You'll fight yourself through .5 all the way to BD #5. but the quality of rock never diminishes. Don't give up on the OW at the top, a hand jam lays in wait for those who seek it....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
