Do not park in the residential neighborhood! Park in the designated lot MORE INFO >>>


For Penny Lane, this climb is unusually low angle. It's a good option when everything else in this area is busy (as it often is), and it takes you to anchor that allows you to TR some much harder climbs for a workout.


Just right of Quarryman, this route takes the face close to the arete.


Two bolts plus small gear (nuts and cams up to #1 camalot).

The name says it all. I took the longest fall I have had on this route ( 25'). There are some tricky thin face moves after a long run-out. I was attempting to place a cam and my foot came off. A nice climb otherwise.
