This is a broad face with a number of fun routes from 5.8 to 5.12. The rock on this side is cleaner, with very little of the lichen present on the east face, but it's also a little rougher in texture.

Routes to do here include Trolling for Tuna (5.8), Crappie Corner (5.10a/b), Rapala (5.10c), Power Bait (5.10d) and Check Your Fly (5.12a).

The trail that passes below Crappie Corner is almost directly above the highway (and somewhat loose) so take extra caution and try not to dislodge any debris onto the road below.

Getting There 

Circle around past the north face to reach this broad wall. Alternately, you can tunnel through the rock below Catfish Crack and come out by Trolling For Tuna.

Climb the short, vertical face via edges and textured rock with a distinct crux moving past the first bolt. The bolts, especially the first one, should be moved to allow better clipping by shorter people. It would also be nice if the anchor chains were replaced (and lengthened) as the ones currently in place seem more suited for hanging house plants!...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
