Inner Sanctum Rock Climbing
Rainbow forming from morning sun on the small fall...
Not quite as sweet as the Sanctuary but worth a visit for sure... Good 5.10 warm ups for the harder routes at the Sanctuary...
The only 5 star route here is Karmic Retribution 5.10c but there are a few more fun lines such as Bad Company 5.10b, Netizen Hacktivist 5.9+, Cosmic Trigger 5.12a, Among others...
There may be a few dry routes on a rainy day but not enough to make this a rain day destination...
A few hundred feet right of the Sanctuary... follow signs to The Sanctuary then continue right along the cliff past First Fall 5.9 a sweet crack... Just follow the trail for a minute or two past that route an you shall arrive...
Weather station 8.4 miles from here
