This massive block sits at ground level on the east side of the Human Sacrifice Cove and is home to a small collection of high quality problems from V0- to V10. Among the better problems here are Dripper Right (V0+), Dripper Left (V2), Driblet (V4) and Pignose (V10). Be advised that this is a tall boulder with some high and comitting lines so come prepared with the pads.

Getting There 

Head east along the south side of the huge rubble pile following a faint trail. Keep your eye out for the Human Sacrifice Boulder high atop the rubble pile as the Human Sacrifice Cove lies down and to the east of it somewhat hidden. The boulder is on the East side of the cove at ground level and should be obvious. The approach takes about 15 minutes from the car.

A short bit of easy but exposed face leads to the top. Quality.Downclimb by heading to the left and then down a slab with some knobs which will get you onto the shelf above Driblet,...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
