Broken Sword Rock Climbing
Looking northeast at the sword.
A couple short crack/face climbs but a mostly rounded unmentionable large boulder.. until you come around to the southwest face and spy the gigantic fallen sword/tooth formation begging to be traversed.
From the cottonwood giants parking lot head almost due east towards the giant icecream scoop shaped boulder pile. Go around the north side and head to the largest nearby formation to the northeast. See MP map for topo.

Continue around all the way to the right for the mantle top out. Approximately 45-50 feet of heel hooking traversing, far burlier than it appears....[more] Browse More Classics in CA
