This area is easily reached up on the left side of The Gleaner boulder. The majority of the problems are located on the rim edge along a steep pocketed wall. However, as well as steep pocket pulling there are also tall highballs and technical faces to keep everyone happy.

Getting There 

From The Gleaner boulder head left up the well worn trail. As you approach the rim veer left into the alcove.

Rene V5 6C PG13  California : Sierra Eastside : ... : Hand to Hand Combat Wall
Definitely one of the best highballs in the area! Start at the center of the back wall. Move up to the deep hueco and here is where the fun begins....make some really committing moves on TINY pockets. Crux feels like the scary move you have to make to the lip. The climb is well worth it, once you get back on the ground!...[more]   Browse More Classics in California
