Trails are closed from sunset to 6:00 am. MORE INFO >>>


Ascend the face to the left of Mr. Magoo on the Magoo Rock via two incredible small finger holds. The ascent can be made harder via an sit down start (sds) first down by Chris Scharma five years ago that is rated V10.


No pro. Boulder problem.

How hard is the "non-eliminate" Bates Problem? Going up and left to the jug instead of making the move up and right?

old school classic. non eliminate goes one move right to the angled crimp, then left hand to the lip arete.
