Castle Waterman and some stuff on the right. Easy ...


Big lump of granite visible from ACH. Rock quality down low is not too good, but it improves the higher you climb.

Getting There 

The best approach is to hike up the west ridge from the parking lot off the Santa Clara Divide/ACH intersection. Follow the ridge up taking the easy ground until you reach the rock. We eyeballed it and used a Tom Harrison map, but you could probably do better by printing out a satellite image of the area, marking the crag.

Route starts up a 5.7 crack with sandy rock and enters the CAVE OF SHAME! Climb up through cave of shame to the end, and traverse left over bulge with hands in fist crack (#3 cam), then up. Follow slightly zigzagging system of corners with interesting and slightly awkward moves on pretty damn nice rock at this point. Route ends at old cool tree of some sort. Not a Pine, something else....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
