2 good trad routes: The Far Side and Portal offer slab, crack and slight overhang.

Both can be toproped by walking left and circling up and around the peak from the back side to a large ledge where you can set up a trad anchor over both climbs. I used small and med. cams, Tricams and #5 and 6 Hexcentrics. Use slings or anchor rope to extend 7-8' over ledge.

Getting There 

Routes are directly behind and right of campsite #8 off the group camp road, and offer good shade most of the day.

The Far Side starts from a large block (comfortable for belaying on) to about 15' of face climbing to a couple of diagonal ledges on which you traverse up and right. It's mostly footwork until the upper, more vertical crack far to the right allows good hand use.Our church group of mixed ages found this an appropriate beginner's challenge, and enjoyed the fun, unobstructed rappel on this huge slab....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
