The Incisor is a large blocky rock about 100 feet high. This rock has old trad routes, new bolted routes, and boulder problems on it. The trad routes include an old Royal Robbins route, and a John Gill route. Three bolted routes can be found that are probably in the range of 5.10 to 5.11. Also, several boulder problems exist on the northwest face of the rock. Look for about a half dozen old Gill that lead to a small ledge about 15 feet up next to a piton.

Getting There 

Follow the directions for the Picket Fence to the top of the hill area with no vegatation. The Incisor is the obvious rock just to the right of the trail. It can be identified by a seam with two pitons in it facing the trail.

What is the name & rating of the bolted route on the right corner as you look at Incisor from the trail (i.e. to the right of the Gill problems)?

I dont remember the name, but the rating is 5.10a/b. I was with Paul Duval on the 1st ascent. I remember it being very fun with a nice, somewhat gymnastic move just off the crux bolt. It may have been "Laughing Gas" or something along the dentistry theme.
